Failed to open document message help please

i’m getting the error “Failed to Open Document” help me please


Your profile says you are using SketchUp Free which is web based. Is that correct? And you’re getting that message when trying to open a SketchUp model?

Please upload your model to some place like DropBox or WE Transfer and share it so we can try to help.

The problem with the file is that it has a lot of very big materials. It did eventually open for me.

I am making a version with the big materials reduced in size. Hopefully that will work better for you.

Here are two files to try. One is where I reduced the materials to be no bigger than 512x512. That is still fairly detailed. Doing that reduced the amount of memory needed to about a quarter of what it was.

The other file also has unused items purged, which reduced the file size to 157 MB (original file was over 800 MB). See if either of these work for you.
