Can't download from the 3D warehouse without creating a google account?

I am using Sketchup 2017 and 2019 in a classroom setting. This year for some reason students are unable to download from the 3D warehouse without having a google account. I would like to avoid creating google accounts for all of the students. Is there a work around for this?

Thank you!


It is not a Google account, per se. It is a Trimble ID or so called ‘All for SketchUp account’
Since a month or so you need to be signed in. You can create one general Trimble ID (needs to be an accessible email-address) or use the Component panel trick without logging in:
Open a Component Panel, use the 3D Warehouse search function in there and click on the thumbnail to ‘drag’ it in the model.

Thank you for the prompt reply. To clarify, I can make ONE Trimble account, and have multiple users logging in at the same time? (ie: my class)


Unless they all click at the same time, I foresee no problems.

perfect! thank you!
