SKP to JSON Conversion

The following list contains valuable resources, packed with detailed guides and expert tips for converting SKP files to JSON format using our converters. Look into them now to ease your SKP files conversion later.


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:

  • Support: SKP files support reusable geometry components, named mesh groups, and textured materials.
  • 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.
  • SKP Converter: SKP files can be saved in any desired version, from SketchUp 3 to SketchUp 2023, with the help of Autoconverter, a powerful software that ensures high accuracy and efficiency.

JSON CityJSON File

A file format for the efficient storage and exchange of 3D city models and landscapes. It has the following benefits and features:

  • Optimized CityGML: The CityJSON format is based on CityGML, which is an OGC standard for representing and exchanging 3D urban data. However, CityJSON is optimized for simplicity and efficiency, using JSON instead of XML as the underlying syntax. CityJSON reduces the file size and complexity of CityGML files, making them easier to process and manipulate.
  • 3D City Data: The CityJSON files can store 3D city models and landscapes, which are composed of various city objects, such as buildings, roads, bridges, vegetation, etc. Each city object has a name, a geometry, and a set of attributes. The format also supports nested hierarchy, reusable geometry component instances, and custom materials with texture images, which enhance the realism and detail of the 3D city data.
  • CityJSON Converter: Autoconverter allows you to import and export CityJSON files, and convert them into various other 3D mesh file formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS`, etc. Our software supports the reading and writing of CityJSON geometries with custom attributes, which preserve the semantic information of the 3D city data.
