Mac to PC to Mac file conversions


Hi all -

New to the board, I searched but really only found Mac vs PC discussions.

I wanted to see if there were any opinions or known issues around sharing files back and forth between platforms. We use Macs for the majority of our design work, but our models are starting to get pretty complex and wanted to buy a higher end PC dedicated to crunching the renders and then moving them back to the mac. How well do the .skp files move back and forth between platforms - any known errors, or issues, is this a bad idea?


there can be occasional errors with fonts if you don’t have the same ones on both platforms…

very high end renders are quite possible on mac using KeyShot and others…



The file format itself is completely portable. But John is right that there can be errors if you use a resource such as a font that isn’t installed on both systems.
