Hi @zvan2000, our customers are using it professionally, both as an idea generator and as a rendering software. We are the first and only AI generated rendering plugin for SketchUp

Hi Arkoai,
I installed the extension and I am connected to my account. But when I clic on the extension’s icon, nothing happens. The extension is “enabled” and the other extensions are working. Am I missing something? Do you have a tutorial for the first use? The only video I found shows that the icon opens a window, which is not happening for me.
Thank you

how to install for Sketchup 2019?? i don’t see

Their website says at the bottom, under Versions…

Compatible with SketchUp® 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023

There was a bug fix in the v2020 release involving UV mapping. This may be why older versions are not supported.

You do not install from Extension Warehouse as this plugin is not listed there.

The download is a .msi archive for the Windows plugin. Right-click the file, choose Run as administrator and it will be installed by the Microsoft installer that is part of the Windows OS.

If later you wish to uninstall it, go to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features scroll down and find the plugin in the list. Click it and you should see an Uninstall button.

Can this be used with the free version of SketchUp?

Hi, sorry, no.

The free web version don’t have extensions.

the older free version stopped in 2017, and as stated a couple messages above and on the site, the extension works with 2020+
