I own an individual licence for SketchUp pro 2016. I use it for designing things for my use several times a year and not professional use. In 2016 it contained all the features that I felt I needed so I did not continue to upgrade. Now I find that the functionality that I had (purchased, and paid to upgrade and maintain for several years) is no longer a part of my sketchup pro 2016. Some features were taken away. I do not recall receiving any notice that access to the 3D warehouse or extensions would be discontinued for my version until I found them missing. I can work around the extensions by manually installing them, but the access to the 3D warehouse is now limited to generic files which require substantial manipulation to be usable. I also use solid geometry and printing to scale in layout which is why I purchased the pro version in the first place.
Now it appears that it will cost $299/year to get that same capability.
I would have expected to be notified before functionality of my software licence was removed. I feel ripped off, and I am looking for a good way forward.
Any suggestions that do not cost $299/ per year would be appreciated.
