Results of Validity Check.
*** Problems were found that could not be fixed! ***

The entity at address 3c5ecc10 has an invalid id (0) destroyed (0)

It’s happening when I’m trying to save a piece of work, which is two models downloaded straight from the sketch up warehouse, with next to no editing.

I just got the same error message (slightly different numbers though)…

The entity at address 150f3c00 has an invalid id (0) destroyed (0)

I got it when I downloaded 5 various models from the warehouse (didn’t edit any of them). I have since deleted all of the models I downloaded but I’m still receiving the error message. Any info would be greatly appreciated.


#3

Have you purged the component definition list after removing the instances from the model ?

Model Info > Statistics > Purge Unused


#4

Thank you for the tip! I did go in and purge unused and unfortunately I’m still getting the error message (but with different numbers this time). Seems like the file is still saving and functioning though.


#5

I too am having this problem. I made a few simple changes and when saving got a similar massage.
After attempting to save numerous times, I closed the file and re-opened it. All of my changes had saved and when I saved again, the message was gone.

I’m curious though, the others having this problem (Pip24 and jointeriors), do you have text in your file?


#6

Sometimes selecting everything in the model and copy paste into a new SketchUp instance will solve the issue.

This TIP is awesome - it solves the problem. Thanks a lot Dan.

One way of getting this error message.

  • start a new file
  • model something and make it a component
  • save the file with the same name as you gave the component
  • import the file into another SketchUp model.

The right way to save a component for import into other models is to right-click on it and select Save As from the context menu.
