Welcome to our forums! Please introduce yourself :)

Hello, My name is Daniel and I am a beginner to sketch up. I am running off of a MacBook Pro Catalina and I have SketchUp Pro 2021. I have been making some designs for my local town and I created a suspension bridge that I think looks great. I am trying to export it into Google Earth but I keep getting an error and I have tried all the tips already on the internet and still no luck. Hopefully I can get some help here.

Are you using Google Earth Pro?

Yes. I just started using it so maybe I’m doing something wrong?

Start a new thread and share your .skp file as well as the exported kmz file. If the .skp file is too large to upload directly to the forum, upload it to Drop Box and share the link.

This may be ignorant of me but I don’t understand how to download an .SKP file. when I hit export, I don’t get an option for making it an .SKP file.

.skp is the native SketchUp model file extension. It’s what you get when you Save or Save as… Export is for other file types like .dxf, .dwg, .png, etc.

Hello, i am a French amateur historian. I run a blog about the history of my town : le village de Billancourt
I reconstructed the old medieval farm that used to be in my neighbourhood, from descriptions of 18th century texts. I modeled it with Sketchup… Here it is . I am not really happy with the visual result. I wonder if anyone could spend some time to render it in a more realistic way ? That would be great !
