I’m new to Sketchup but I am finding it awesome.
I will be using this for designing hobby based stuff. The first time I downloaded Sketchup it was owned by Google. Since downloading it years later with the intention of using it to solve the issues I was having with flat 2D design I’ve noticed it doesn’t seem to be Google’s anymore.
I’ve downloaded the Make version as I imagine the pro version is extremely expensive (I won’t be making money from it). I was quite annoyed at the Pro version trail starting as default so I tried to change my calendar so it would terminate the trail but when I set my calendar back it just put me back in trial mode I don’t know what the difference is between them but ones things for certain I DID NOT WANT A TRAIL. Seems like its pushed down my throat even though it was suggested I download the free version as I am a hobbiest.
Second annoyance was looking for Sketchy Physics on the warehouse (Im assuming this is like an App store for plugins). Everywhere I look someone is using Sketchy Physics but I can’t seem to find a copy other than one I downloaded from a website which told me to put it into the non-existent Plugins folder in program files.
So far everything has gone great but these two things are driving me nuts. I can imagine that once my trail ends my model that I’ve been working on for days will suddenly stop working or have a bunch of things missing. How do you guys get around the missing pro version features and what is the equivalent to Google Sketchy Physics plugin from the Sketchup Warehouse?
