Chief Architect Help Database - Article Number: 1238
Message: Unable to import .SKP file.The information in this article applies to:
- Chief Architect X5
- Chief Architect X4
When I try to import some 3D symbols in .SKP format, this message appears:
"Warning: Unable to import .SKP file. The .SKP file format standard does not offer support for 64-bit applications. You may import this .SKP file using the 32-bit version of Chief Architect."
This warning message will display in the 64-bit version of Chief Architect Premier when you try to import a 3D symbol created in Google Sketchup. Sketchup is currently only available only as a 32-bit application and as such its files cannot be imported into a 64-bit program.
SKP files can be imported into 32-bit versions of Chief, however, so if you need to import a symbol, you can do so by installing the 32-bit version of Chief Architect Premier. Both 32-bit and 64 bit versions can be installed on the same computer at the same time.
Please note that the two program versions will share some data - notably, library content. If you add or remove content using one version, the changes will be reflected in the other as well.
