Help translating a few simple skf drawings

561 Views, 6 Replies
01-20-2011 10:17 AM

I apologize if this request is inappropriate for the group.  My daughter has 6 simple autosketch skf drawings that she created in a prior high school design class and she'd like to submit them with an college application for Interior Design.  I'm coming up short finding some sort of viewer so that we could print these drawings (the HS no longer has the program).  Also, it seems that none of the trial Autodesk packages support the skf format.  Is there a way that I could view (or translate to a supported format) and print these simple drawings?

 

Thanks in advance,

Rick

What version of sketch was used? You can pick up v9 for ~$40 - $50 off ebay

StevenMac,

 

Sorry, I don't know the version.  Is there somewhere in the binary dump that I could find the version?  Appreciate your response.  FYI, I tried to attach one of the skt files but autodesk won't even accept files with an skf extension!  I guess this isn't an acceptable format any longer.

Thanks again,

Rick

Rename the file to .doc .bak .txt or something that does get allowed

StevenMac,

 

Thanks.  Good idea.  Here are the .skf files with .doc extensions.  Sent 1/2 of them since they're small.

Thanks,

Rick

They open up and look ok in v10 ($250 from autodesk website), so you may want to risk it and buy v9 which probably only runs on win XP (ebay $50).

 

I assume they'll need a little fixing, look at the black V shapes here - http://i52.tinypic.com/2vj4fwp.jpg
