Model compatability


Hi, I’m currently using Sketchup 8.0.16845 on a Mac running OS Sierra.
If I upgrade to Sketchup Make will I be able to access/modify models created in the older version?


YEs. Newer versions of SketchUp can open SKP files from older versions. If you save the file as the newer version, you won’t be able to open it in SU8 but you can back save to SU8 from the newer version.




You can install separate versions of SketchUp side-by-side on the same machine. They install into their own versioned folders, and have their own extensions.

But newer versions of SketchUp use a newer version of Ruby (2.x) and you’ll need to install newer versions of plugins and extensions.
