    Hello,
    I need to convert SKP to WYG and saving the file as 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 gives the following error:
    OpenFile("E:\Projects\...\Arch_#_1.skp") failed
    Nothing else.
    Using WygR40 - exporting to 3DS, DWG or OBJ is not a great options since it creates an astounding amount of bad cluster in the 3D model ( + everything is consolidated.. which is pretty bad )

    Thanks,

    Try purging file in Sketchup first (get rid of invisible parts and textures, etc). If that doesn’t help, try importing the file in smaller parts or objects with the same basepoint for easy alignment.
    For sure sketchup 2016 is fully supported. You can also try to reduce the number of polygons during import.
