• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Jetbridges In MSFS 2020

Is there a tutorial on how to make automated jet-bridges for MSFS 2020. Also does anyone have a tutorial on how to draw jet-bridges in sketchup?.


While we may 3D model / texture in Sketchup, there is no Sketchup work-flow to animate those models for use in any version of MS-FS2Kx or MSFS-2020.

I suggest exporting from Sketchup jet-ways to a 3D model exchange format that can be imported into Blender to animate such 3D models:


PS: On a practical basis, jet-ways are rather complex to animate and synchronize with MSFS A.I. sub-systems; I recommend use of default animated jet-ways.

However, you may wish to review this info as well:


Many thanks for the very generous contribution made by Peter Hornfeck which may help us all with learning Blender animation methods. :teacher:
