Importing skp files to vcarve

despite the vectric site claiming it can import skp files and having a bunch of articles and videos about it, our version of vcarve on the big cnc doesn’t accept them

does anybody have experience importing skp files into vcarve that can help me out?

Vcarve does not accept .skp files. Export to a dxf and then import to Vcarve

Cool on opening it.
