View Full Version : Reading Google Sketchup (.skp) or Google Earth (.kmz)???
I want to write a simple c++ application the reads sketchup (skp) or google earth file (kmz) and get out of them the mesh information. Can anybody please provide me with some relevant articles?
Is there any C++ library that can perform this function?
Thanks a lot in advance.
You can find the specification for the .klm files here (http://earth.google.com/userguide/v4/ug_kml.html) (.kmz is only compressed .klm files), and it seems the model is linked into the file (http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/models.html) as a collada file... And when you compress it (kmz), you can find it in the "files" directory. Check the last link for more info...
For skp it seems you got the answer here (http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showthread.php?p=726298) already....
Thanks a whole lot for your response.
Is there any way to read Sketchup files, while in Linux...I want to develop my own C++ API to do this? (I don't have Sketchup Pro so no access to Google's C++ SDK).
Any ideas as to where I should start?
