Models saved in KMZ/KML format can be imported and processed in some 3D modelling software and further exported and saved to other 3D formats, including Collada 3D digital assets (.dae). Blender is good choice for this, as it is available for free. However this conversion should be possible in several other programs.

AccuTrans 3D provides accurate translation of 3D geometry between the file formats used by many popular modeling programs. Positional and rotational information for the 3D meshes is maintained.
Convert from kmz file

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned kmz to dae. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
