I have used the free SketchUp for many years, even before being purchased by T. I have upgraded my Mac to Monterey 15.2, so my SketchUp models are no longer available. If I subscribe to Shop will my old models be accessible to view and modify?

It's 2020. So what's still free? You can use the web-only version called SketchUp Free. You have to sign in online to use it. Otherwise you've got to pay for a SUBSCRIPTION: • SketchUp Shop is also web-only and costs $119/yr, designing for personal use. • SketchUp Pro is both for desktop and web at $299/yr, designing for professional use.

Hi there. I've installed the SketchUp on my Mac, but it require a license to use. I'm using Mac OS Catalina. Then, I've installed SketchUp Pro 2020. Am I need to uninstall it? Does exist a free version for non comercial purpose?

This friendly program makes it very easy to make 3D shapes. It takes some practice to make complex models and it is very easy to damage a part of your model but the results are very rewarding.
There is a free (Make) version without time limit. The current version is 17.2.2554

Very good intuitive modeling program. But not set up for stand-alone professional use.We use VectorWorks; it does SketchUp like modeling along with everything else a professional CAD program should do. Clients send us SketchUp drawings sometimes and they can be helpful; they can be imported into VectorWorks. Vectorworks evolved from MiniCad which was an early Cad program for Mac.

Let's sort out the situation: 1) SketchUp v8 is STILL available for free. You will find it here: http://www.sketchup.com/intl/en/download/ 2) SketchUp v13 is ACTUALLY SketchUp PRO. The PRO version is a TRIAL with 8 hours of unlimited use before it turns into a pumpkin. Then you have to PAY for it. You can find it at the link MU provides here, as well as at the Download page linked above. IOW: No panic required. If you don't want the shareware PRO version, then get version 8, which is freeware.

This latest 2013 version is not free anymore. After update it asks for a license or run as a time trial. Reverted immediately to previous version.

According to the licence: "By installing the Software, you agree to automatically request and receive Updates." Why exactly is this clause necessary?

If you already have the nasty Google Software updater on your computer here's how to remove it for good. Delete the contents of this folder. ~/Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate Then lock the folder. It can't reinstall itself after that.

I created a drawing of a house plan in Sweet Home 3d (a free app) some time ago and wanted to see how well SketchUp handled it. The drawing has walls, windows, doors, some furniture, and other ditties. I wanted to see if SketchUp could put a roof on the house but I never got that far. It didn't crash. I exported the file from Sweet Home 3D as a .obj file (the only option you have) and imported this file into Cheetah3D (an awesome app). I then exported it from Cheetah3D as a .3ds file. SketchUp did not import a .3ds file properly at all. So, I exported the file from Cheetah3D to a .dxf file which SketchUp did import albeit very slowly. The resulting drawing was tiny in scale. This is not right. I need accurate dimensions. The resulting file had over 250,000 entities - what did this thing do, take every itty bitty line and make it an entity? As a result, moving around is EXTREMELY slow - zooming and panning tested my patience. I did draw a few things but lost interest in using it because it's performance on this file was so bad. SketchUp can be used for *simple* drawings containing small numbers of objects and that's about it. It is like 3D electronic graph paper and it might serve your needs so give it a try but don't be surprised if it starts to balk at higher levels of complexity.

I just started using it a few days ago, and it's already become one of the most common pieces of software I use. I've played with AutoCAD in the past, but am by no means an expert, so I wasn't sure if I'd be able to master SketchUp - while I'm not yet a master, I've already mocked up my living room (we're shopping for furniture), and I can't wait to try my hand at some exterior landscaping designs. Thanks Google!

I first saw SketchUp at MacWorld NY in 2002 and was immediately taken by it. This was what I wanted 3D to be since first starting to work with integrating architecture and computers! There are more robust programs for CAD and for 3D modeling, but I find nothing easier to use in the design phase - it is like a combination of napkin sketching and clay models. I can very quickly put an idea together and then play with it until I have my thoughts together. I rarely pick up paper and marker anymore to design. Clients also respond very favorably to SketchUp - the ability to quickly see their ideas take shape and look at various possibilities - should this be taller, what if this is smaller...? No, you're not likely to do a full set of construction documents with it, but I have done some small projects that way. And with the TurboSketch plugin you can do some pretty realistic rendering as well.

Why would this need root access? Can't install till I know. FWIW, using 'unpkg' to see what gets installed leaves an EMPTY folder. What are you hiding?

This product is a very good OS X implementation of a 3D software. Clean and stable release I think it's much better than Live Interior 3d or any over Mac 3D Designer. Easy to use and functional tool to design environements and interiors. I love this product.

This is a good basic CAD type sytem, with a few problems. My main problem with it is the difficulty in dimentioning and constraining items. It can be done in a couple different ways, but none of them are easy, especially when compared to high end CAD systems. It can also have drawing errors if you don't have a new enough graphics card. You really need at least 32mb of VRAM in order to get it to draw correctly. THIS IS NOT A UNIVERSAL APP! If you are using an intel mac it will not run well. I can run it okay on my 5 year old iBook 500, and it runs well on my iMac G4 700, as long as I keep the geometry simple. Any PPC mac of 1Ghz or more should have no problem at all with this app.
