Unexpected file format error pls help


I’ve saved my project like I always do, and when i try to open it, sketchup give me a “unexpected file format” error.

I’ve already tried to open the skb file but nothing…can someone please help me?


How is that? Where did you save it?

If you read the several threads on this same topic you’ll see that sharing the file is required. @colin very often has some success at recovering at least the components and materials.


you can download the project file here.

Please help :smiling_face_with_tear:

I expect Colin will be along to try to help when he has time.

I’m getting the file. Where I am at the moment has Internet problems, it will take a while to download.

Thank you, that would be awesome :pray:

I didn’t recover anything in the scene, only components and materials.


so… I’ve lost everything? :smiling_face_with_tear:

No. Not everything. The components and materials are there. You will have to rebuild your scene.

Where have you been saving your files?
