Unexpected file format - file retrieval

Please can you assist in retrieving a file with the unexpected file format alert when opening.

I have tried renaming the skb to skp but that has not worked.

Looks like there was a bad group in the model but opening it took care of that. I also note incorrect tag usage. Untagged should be left active.

Lots of unused stuff. No need to hoard unused components and materials.

Dave is using the latest version of SketchUp 2023.1.3, which had some improvements in it to take care of model corruptions. If you’re not up to date you might want to get the newest version. Then your file would have opened for you, though missing the one group that had become corrupted.
