Convert X3D to SKP: Everything You Need to Know

X3D to SKP: Resources

Refer to the following resources for additional support on the interoperability and exchange of X3D and SKP file formats. They will assist you in transitioning from X3D to SKP files.


X3D File X3D

The X3D (Extensible 3D) file format is an open-source and royalty-free XML based format, developed and maintained by the Web3D Consortium. It’s designed to store two or three-dimensional models along with various visualization data, including light sources, viewport information, camera properties, special effects, and more. X3D serves as an advanced extension and a replacement for the original VRML file format, which was primarily used in web applications. Both of our X3D file converters, Autoconverter and Automesher Application, allow for the import and export of mesh entities from X3D files. For optimized file sizes, you have the option to use the binary X3DB file format instead of the default text-based X3D file.


SketchUp SKP File SKP

The SKP (SketchUp) file format, initially maintained by Google and now actively developed by Trimble, allows for the storage of reusable geometry component instances, named mesh groups, and materials with texture images. It’s important to note that starting from the SKP file version 16, the Win32 build is no longer available, making it advisable to use the Win64 build for converting the latest SketchUp models. With our Autoconverter software, you can save SKP files in any required version, from the early SketchUp 3 to the most recent SketchUp 2022.
