there is an issue with displacement in sketchup (or rather skindigo). try to lower subdivision level or use bump instead.

I encountered the same problem too.
That means too many digital amount.
If you get a computer system having large mathematical ability.It maybe not appear.

The error can happen in two cases:

- you wanted to displace a plane and you ticked the option to smooth the subdivided shape: the plane can collapse into a very small and heavy geometry.
:arrow: disable the shape smoothing

- you wanted to displace an object whose faces weren't merged, leading to multiple collapsed faces, as above.
:arrow: set all faces smooth to allow them to be sewed.

Unfortunately this answer is more a generic Indigo answer than SkIndigo specific, it will require some interpretation from you, or some more help from SkIndigo users :)

Try using the latest indigo version. 2.4.4 or newer.
