Thanks for the clues. For anyone else who may be wrestling with this I tried to export dxf from sketchup 15 and use it in online easel. It didn’t work. Kept playing with it and saw notes from some users in inventables that it needed to be joined. So I export to dxf from sketchup. Open up in CAmBam. Join whole dwg to 0.001. then export from cambam to dxf again(change file name for tracability). I can then import sketchup designed dxf into easel.
I will continue to evolve this because I think now that Cambam is generating gcode that upsets the maslow. Now I can design the 2D part, process in this way, and then run the gcode generated by easel in the maslow. Same part, but different generation of gcode.
