Finding an alternative to LayOut


#1

Hey all,
I posted recently regarding making some Shop Drawings for a construction company. Everything seems to lead me to getting Sketchup Pro, however, I can not afford it. Is there another alternative to Layout that I can use that will replicate what Layout can do for me, or free plugins for make that I can use?

You can export images from SU and import them into something like Word but that’ll be far from close to LayOut. Frankly, if your time is worth anything, you should be using LayOut.

Since you are using SketchUp to create drawings for a commercial purpose, you must use SketchUp Pro anyway. SketchUp Make is for personal, hobby use only. You should read the EULA.

Hey Dave, where can I find the EULA?

See this:
https://www.sketchup.com/license/b/sketchup-make

And also see this one (which I think is the current version.) It has a section for both Pro and Make:

It’s also one of the things you clicked OK / Accept on when installing the software. I know it becomes like muscle memory when doing software installations, but it is there…

or:
C:\Program Files\SketchUp\SketchUp 2017\resources\<locale>\eula.html
