Convert XYZ to SKP: The Expert Tips

XYZ to SKP: Resources

The following resources are provided for your reference, focusing on the interoperability and exchange between XYZ and SKP files. They are designed to assist you in the transition from XYZ to SKP files.


Point Cloud XYZ File XYZ

The XYZ (Point cloud data) file extension is used for ASCII text files that contain point cloud data. Each row in an XYZ file consists of 3D point coordinates, typically separated by a special character like a TAB. Optionally, the XYZ file may also include 3D normal vector coordinates for each point. Our primary XYZ file converter, Autoconverter software, can automatically reconstruct mesh surfaces from point cloud data. Additionally, Autoshaper software, another one of our XYZ file converters, allows for the reconstruction of smooth NURBS surfaces from scattered points stored in the XYZ file. It’s worth noting that point cloud data may also use alternative file extensions such as ASC or TXT.


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.
