Default Sketchup files

Mark;
Would it be possible for Sketchup files (.skp) to be uploaded?

Hi Mike,

Not to start a "war" about operating systems, but, are you aware that the program "sketchup" seems only to work with the XP and Vista operating systems on a PC?
Kind of a waste for all the rest of us guys that are using older operating systems.
But it's just my two cents worth.

Cordially,
Gerry

Yes, I'm aware of that. Those that do use Sketchup would be able to DL the file and open it with SU. They would then be able to get the measurements directly from SU.

Mike,
Good question. I would like to be able to up/down load .skp files on the forums.

They are very small. The one for my mailbox post is only 67kb.

Hi Mike

Many will not be able to open them up,,or view them

Why not just capture the screen and post them in the gif or the jpg format so all can view them or use them or put them in a PDF file, almost all can open a PDF files..just need a index list for the parts..

Bj,
The problem with that is "What you see is what you get". Where as in a .skp file opened in Sketchup you can manipulate the file to different angles and views. Also, you can have different views set up in transitions in Sketchup. Besides, Sketchup is free, so if you want to view the files, simply download the latest version of SU and there you are.

Hi curiousgeorge

The last time I checked Sketchup was a 34mb file..that's a big program to download and install just to view a file or two..

But I'm sure some will if they have a quick/fast hook up..

All I'm asking is if .skp can be made a valid file type for those that want the measured drawings. It doesn't have to replace pictures, just be an addition to info provided on a project.

Hi Mike:

Is there some prohibition on file types now? *.skp files could be just attached and if someone wants a copy, they just download it. No need for permissions. *.skp files are dead data in database format and can't carry viruses and such. They're just like a *.gif or others.

Just my 2 cents worth. I would't mind access to drawings if I could just figure out how to use the [email protected]#$%^^&&**()_+!! program.
