Dear SketchUp Island: Model "Failed Processing"

Dear SketchUp Island: I know that every one of my model preview pages has a "3D Buildings Review" section at the bottom, where I am informed if my model has made it to Google Earth or not. Recently one of my best models was labeled with the words "failed processing." What does that mean? Did I do something wrong? --Failure in Florida

Dear Failure: Failure you are not! On certain occasions it is perfectly normal for a model to fail to be processed through the "3D Pipeline." Google is working out the kinks, but in the meantime there are some things YOU can do to reduce the chance of this happening to your model. Just follow this link to the Google SketchUp help pages!
