What is a SKP file?

A .SKP file is a SketchUp 3D Model file.

Files that contain the .skp file extension are used by the SketchUp 3D modeling software application.

These files contain three-dimensional models that have been created with the SketchUp software program. The models that are made in SketchUp can be used in the Google Earth application or can be shared with other users online.
