File Extension SKP

Files that contain the file extension SKP are associated with multiple programs and applications and various file types. The programs and applications include SketchUp, Corex, SSEYO Koan, and Sage. SKP files contain data and information related to the program that created them.

If the SKP file extension is created by SketchUp, it is an image file type that contains vector graphics, 3D images, mathematical calculations, lines, models, objects, and other data which is commonly used with Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. SketchUp is offered by Google and can be integrated with Google Earth.

SKP files that are associated with Corex are a data file type in a proprietary format. The files contain orthographic transcription data which is designed to integrate with the Corpus Gesproken Nederlands (CGN), a database of more than 9 million spoken Dutch words. Corex is a program which allows you to listen to files contained in the CGN database.

If the SKP file is related to SSEYO Koan, it is an audio file type that contains sound files, codecs, and other data which is designed to allow you to author and create interactive audio and music tracks. SSEYO Koan is a software authoring system which allows you to create audio for use on websites.

SKP files which are created by Sage are financial data file types that contain numeric information, mathematical calculations, financial transactions, and other elements commonly used in the accounting industry. Sage is an accounting and business management software application designed to accommodate small to medium-sized businesses.

How to Open SKP Files

Since SKP files are associated with multiple programs and applications, double click on the file to see if it will automatically open in a default program you have installed on your PC. SKP files can consist of different file types, so you may already have a program which will open the file.

If the SKP files originate from SketchUp and you use Windows, you can open them by downloading a free version of SketchUp. Other programs that will open SKP files in Windows include Trimble SketchUp or IMSI TurboCAD Deluxe. For Mac OS X, you can use Trimble SketchUp or IMSI TurboCAD Deluxe v6, and for Linux you can use Trimble 3D Warehouse to open SKP files related to SketchUp.

SKP files associated with Corex require you to install the Corex program and then integrate the program with the Corpus Gesproken Nederlands database in order to open this type of SKP file. This allows you to use Corex commands to work with the CGN database and to open and view SKP files.

If the file extension SKP is created by SSEYO Koan, you can download and install the SSEYO Koan application from the CNET website to open and view SKP files. You can also view the contents of the file using any text editor such as Notepad or WordPad for Windows, Apple TextEdit for Mac, or gEdit and Nano Editor for Linux.

SKP files associated with the Sage accounting program can be opened using the Sage software program, which is available on the Sage website. You can also opt to use the Sage cloud solution to open SKP files using your web browser. This type of SKP file can also be opened using Microsoft Excel, which is part of the Microsoft Office Suite of applications, or OpenOffice, which is multiplatform and available as a free download from the website.
