Q - question

Is it possible to import SketchUp SKP files 2013, 2018,2019 or 2020 into Revit?

A - answer No, Autodesk Revit (up to version 2019) can import only "google" versions of SketchUp files, i.e. up to version 8. But never mind, higher SketchUp versions can save SKP files back to the version 8 format so you can then read these files in Revit.

Nor other Autodesk software applications supporting the SKP format files (AutoCAD, 3ds Max, Navisworks, Infraworks) do support the SKP version 2013, 2014 and higher file formats.


3ds Max 2015 Extension 2 supports import of SKP version 2014 files and 3ds Max 2016 then also the SKP version 2015 files. AutoCAD 2016-2019 supports - with the free SketchUp plugin (the IMPORTSKP command) - .SKP file versions 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Revit releases higher than 2019 support import of .SKP files also from the "trimble" versions of SketchUp, up to the version SketchUp 2018.

Revit 2020.1 and higher supports .SKP files up to the version SketchUp 2019.

Revit 2021.1 and higher supports .SKP files up to the version SketchUp 2020.
