SKB file format is used to store backup copy of 3D model created with SketchUp software developed by Google. It contains a carbon copy of model data stored in the original file.
SKB file is automatically generated by the program when auto-save function is enabled. This file serves as a backup copy in case the original file becomes corrupted or deleted. SKB file is always saved in the same file folder the main file containing 3D model data is located in.
BothWindows and Mac OS X offer support for SKB file format as SketchUp utility was designed from the ground up with those operating systems in mind. Windows stores SKB files as [filename.skb], and in Mac OS X as [filename]~.skb.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the SKB file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the SKB file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the SKB file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the SKB file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the SKB file should be solved.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the SKB file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
