How do i transfer the models I'm working on from the old computer to the new computer?


#1

So I’m downloading Sketchup on a new computer, and i have Models on my old computer that I’m still working on. How can i take my files and models from the old computer and use it on the newly downloaded Sketchup on the new computer?

Save your models to a flash drive then download from the flash drive to the new computer. Are the models on the old computer made with the same version of SU on the new computer?

Having seen file corruption for the flakiest reasons in the past I always recommend compressing SKP files to a ZIP before emailing them or transferring them to a USB drive. It’ll make them quite a bit smaller and guarantee they don’t become corrupt.

My preferred sharing method for SketchUp files is a Dropbox folder which I work from and I then just make sure I close SketchUp when I leave my computer so that it syncs properly to the cloud, then I open it at my new computer and carry on as if nothing changed.
