Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or X3D (Extensible 3D Graphics) model files to a standard SKP (SketchUp) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple X3D files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.
To convert your X3D file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a SKP file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the X3D to SKP conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your X3D to SKP.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your X3D file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the X3D to SKP conversion has completed, you can download your SKP file straight away.
We aim to process all X3D to SKP conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the X3D file you submit to us. The resulting SKP file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our X3D to SKP tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our X3D conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
Yes! Our X3D tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 X3D files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the SKP files individually or download them all in a single ZIP file.
Converting from the X3D file format to SKP can be a complex process and any tool used for this conversion process needs to be able to handle a variety of data conversion tasks as well as identify any defects within the 3D model and fix them. Here we will explain the conversion process used by our tool to accurately convert your X3D file to a valid SKP 3D model. Lets start with the conversion process, which involves the following steps:
In its simplest form, an X3D file is a plain text file containing human readable 3D data such as vertices, faces, normals and more. When combined, these make up the 3D model you see on your screen.
With the X3D file data read, our tool generates an internal representation of the full 3D model and will attempt to fix any geometry issues encountered. Along with repairing any issues with the 3D model, the tool will remove any duplicated vertices and prepare the model ready for exporting to the SKP format.
With the conversion process entering its final stages, our tool now needs to take the in-memory 3D model we have created in step 2 and convert this to the SKP format.
The X3D file format was introduced in 2002 as a successor to the 3D VRML (WRL) file format. X3D files contain 3D mesh and model information defined using vertices, faces, normals and material data making it broadly as capable as the older VRML format.
X3D files are structured Xml text based files allowing full 3D scenes containing models comprised of 3D mesh data and other simple shapes. There are browser extensions that allow X3D files to be directly embedded within Html to allow rendering directly to a web page however the format has not seen widespread adoption.
If your X3D file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
The SKP 3D file format is the native file format used by SketchUp. The SketchUp application which was released back in 2000 is still going strong today, allows users to create detailed 3D graphics models.
SketchUp is popular amongst architectural designers, games developers and other professionals and hobbyist users. The SKP format can be opened with the SketchUp application.
Any model converted to the SKP format will be stored in a triangulated mesh format.
