I'm having a problem ( Smile What else is new?) sending my Sketchup model to iClone 6. When I hit the Export button it does nothing but it freezes everything else. After waiting a long while I hit the Control/Alt/delete and then the little screen cojes up asking if I want to send it to iClone 6. I click on that and it starts the download but before it finishes another screen pops up saying iClone 6 has stopped working.
I just got this message awhile ago and I don't know how to do what it is saying I need to do. As always, help is really appreciated.

I am using sketchup 2015 at the moment (haven't updated yet to 2016 ) and have no problem loading my sketchup files into 3DX6
That message is saying the sketchup file is from version 2016

so open the file in sketchup  and "save as" an earlier version than 2016.
All of the versions from the one circled and up should work but if your using sketchup 2016 then the one at the top wont work (it seems from your error)
wont work because that will be 2016 format. choose 2015 or earlier

You may want to provide the link of the item in question. It's likely a version not recognized, or that could be converted to a version that can be used.
SKP files are notorious for having redundant faces that make it appear as a whole mesh, but in fact are closer related to 3DS than OBJ,  and have faces that link, but are not contiguous.  Thus the option to remove back faces is included as part of 3dXchange5 or 6.

I wish I knew enough about it to know about redundant faces and whole mesh.
I am loading it now into 3DiClone 6 as a 2014 SKP file. I don't get the error message about which year but I still get the error message that 3DExchange has stopped working. Here is why it says.https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/7644bd4c-298b-421c-a6be-0b53.jpg

Now Granted, this model (shown below) is a low savings version for face count, but it could easily have been more than half the model you are describing is made up of "Redundant Back Faces".  

Exclude the Back Faces and give a link like this to the model you are looking at:  https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model.html?id=u10badeca-3fd8-4987-af9c-50e59a1c9999


It's a whole lot harder to help, when a mechanic is trying to fix your Studebaker over the phone (so to speak), and you keep describing an Edsel.  
Provide the Make Model and Serial number with a Link that has at least an image of what you are actually trying to drive out of the 3DXchange Garage.
 

Remember when Jack Nicholson said:  "I'm drowning here, and you're describing the Water" ?     With no more than you've given, this is about "As Good As It Gets"  Wink

This worked and it sent the model to iClone 6 but there is a lot of quality and different things like a floor and some roofs missing. Is there any way to get these things back?

I like your analogy but I'm still in the Model T class.

Thanks

Have you ever heard of a skb file? I made a couple of models on Sketchup and when I got through I put them in a file I called finished. I really finished them because I can't find anything to open them. The programs I have will not even recognize them. I don't know what I did to put them in that skb file. I Googled it and got nothing useful.

Skb is a backup file. I think the way it works is when you resave your model the previous file name gets changed to .skb so you can get it back if something happens to corrupt this new .skp file. That is the one you want for your other software, not the skb.

Is there any way to open it? I think that is the only file I have now. Do you know how it got that extension? I have tried all the different programs I have to open it and nothing works. What good is a backup if it can't be opened?
Thanks for your help.

Just rename the *.skb extension to SKP, and you can open it inside 3dXchange, Sketchup or whatever you were using to make the changes with.  It's just a backup of your model before you started making changes.
