I just downloaded this model and tried importing in version 5 & 7.

http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=536b309e40d761de4934781ff2a9c 3aa&prevstart=0

I get a "Unknown File Open Error."

Does Sketchup importing work? How can I get this chair into Z?

In case you forgot, if you are using Windows, you need to use the 32 bit version of formZ -- since Google did not provide any 64 bit libraries...

Does this help?

(If not, please be more specific about which version of formZ and which operating system you are using.)

Hi Roman,

That's strange, if you check your Extensions Menu: Extensions Manager, do you see the plugin listed and enabled?

And in case it helps, here's the file:
