What is a .SKP file?

An SKP file is a type of document created using SketchUp, which is a program designed for building and editing 3D models in a user-friendly way. The content of an SKP file includes a 3D model that might have various visual elements like wireframes (the lines forming the structure of the model), shades (light and dark areas to give depth), edge effects (enhancements on the edges), and textures (surface patterns or images on the model). Additionally, SKP files can contain specific components that can be reused in other SketchUp projects, making it versatile for ongoing design work.

To open an SKP file, you can use several programs depending on your device and needs: 1. **Trimble SketchUp**: This is the primary software for creating and editing SKP files. It's available for both Windows and Mac computers. 2. **Trimble SketchUp Viewer**: If you don't need to edit the files but only want to view them, you can use SketchUp Viewer. This program is lighter and can be used on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android devices. 3. **IMSI TurboCAD Pro and TurboCAD Deluxe**: These are advanced CAD (computer-aided design) programs that support SKP files. They are suitable for professional users and are available for Windows. 4. **Okino Computer Graphics PolyTrans**: This is a software used for converting between different 3D file formats, including SKP. It's useful if you need to use your 3D model in a different software environment. 5. **ACCA Edificius**: This is another CAD software that supports SKP files, often used for architectural and construction purposes. 6. **Web and Trimble 3D Warehouse**: You can also view SKP files online through certain web services like the Trimble 3D Warehouse, which allows users to share and download 3D models.

These tools provide various functionalities from creating and editing to simply viewing or converting SKP files, catering to a wide range of needs from professional to casual users.
