Free verison of sketchup

I have been trying Sketchup 2019 for a couple of weeks and found it to be an excellent program was easy to learn and would like to continue using it. However, it is prohibitively expensive for I would be using it for. I looked at the web version and would like to able use it as a stand alone app.

I tried downloading the 2017 version of Sketchup Make, but it still has a trial period. Is there anyway for me to get a free version of this app?

If you installed SketchUp 2017 Make, it will revert to Make after the 30-day Pro trial. You could also use SketchUp Free since it’s only a hobby thing for you.

By the way, please correct your profile since there is no SketchUp Make 2019 version.
