Skimp

SketchUp Importer and Polygon Reducer for Professionals

Struggling with High-Poly Models in SketchUp?

Skimp your SketchUp model using ultra-fast import and polygon simplification tool

More details and features:

  • Compatible with BOTH Windows and Mac
  • Select any number of Groups or Components in your model and Skimp will trim them down to a manageable size.
  • With Skimp, you can specify an error tolerance for highly accurate metric-based simplification.  This is a critical feature for simplifying mechanical or manufactured objects such as vehicles, appliances, electronics, etc.
  • Skimp’s simplification feature is designed to achieve the perfect balance of accuracy and performance.  It is very fast, highly accurate, and has a low memory footprint.
  • Skimp works entirely inside SketchUp. Simply install it using the Extension Manager and you are good to go!
  • Quickly replace textures and re-assign materials using Skimp’s Replace Textures Tool.

Skimp is powered by the mighty Atangeo Balancer SDK, perhaps the fastest and most memory efficient polygon reduction technology available today.

Working with heavy, bloated, models has sucked the soul from many a SketchUp user.

We’ve been there too…trying to import a million poly OBJ and waiting, waiting, and waiting some more.

Finally! Import complete! But…no textures! Wrong scale! Wrong orientation! And worst of all…my model is now 500 MB and I can barely orbit!

Sound familiar? It’s almost enough to drive us away from our beloved SketchUp! But for some reason…we keep coming back…;)

With Skimp, the pain of working with high-poly models is gone:

  • FAST import of FBX, OBJ, STL, DAE, 3DS (PC only), PLY, and VRML (more formats are planned for the future)
  • SIMPLIFY objects already in your SketchUp model while preserving the model hierarchy
  • PREVIEW the imported model and adjust scale and orientation before importing
  • EXTREMELY FAST and EFFICIENT decimation and simplification your model, before or after importing
  • ACCURATE preservation of the model visual appearance, features, normals, texture coordinates, materials and boundaries.
  • EASILY and QUICKLY simplify models with millions of faces
  • DRASTICALLY REDUCE the size of your SKP file with a few easy clicks

Finally! Pain free SketchUp import and simplification!

All within a simple and intuitive interface that you can learn in minutes!
