KML Keyhole Markup Language File

A file format that enables you to store and share geographical data with Google Earth and Google Earth Pro. Some of the benefits and features of KML files are:

  • XML Format: KML files use XML to store point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometry, which can be easily edited and customized.
  • Interoperability: KML files can be viewed and manipulated by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.

KML Files Converter: KML files can be imported and exported by our Automapki Application, which is compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. This application allows you to convert your DWG entities, such as point, polygon, curve, mesh, 3D solid, and raster image, to KML files, and vice versa.


SKP SketchUp File

A versatile 3D modeling format, native for SketchUp, initially developed by Google and now actively maintained by Trimble. Some of the benefits and features of SKP files are:

  • 3D Model Data: SKP files support reusable geometry components, named mesh groups, and textured materials. The ability to reuse components can significantly speed up the design process, making SKP files a valuable asset in both architectural and product design workflows.
  • Version Compatibility: Different SKP file versions have different requirements for conversion. For example, SKP file version 16 and above need Win64 build, while earlier versions can use Win32 build. It is important for users to be aware of these SKP version-specific requirements to ensure seamless SketchUp file sharing and collaboration.
  • Scalability: SKP files can handle models of varying sizes and complexities. Whether you're designing a small piece of furniture or a sprawling architectural landscape, SKP files can accommodate the project.

SKP Files Converter: SKP files can be saved in any desired version, from SketchUp 3 to SketchUp 2024, with the help of Autoconverter, a powerful software that ensures high accuracy and efficiency. Autoconverter allows users to convert SKP files between different versions, facilitating collaboration across various SketchUp versions and ensuring that designs can be accessed and modified regardless of the specific version used by different team members.
