since some months i am using the Make 2017 Version installed on my Windows Computer for private usage. All this time (till ~2-3 weeks) i was able to integrate prepared components via the “Components” windows in my model. I just searched the required furniture in the search-bar and double clicked the displayed icon. A a small pop-up windows appeared and downloaded the component into my model as a component.
(see picture below … sorry for the german wording, dont know how to switch it to english …)
However, since some weeks this is not working anymore.
Searching is still working like before, all the components are display. But after double click on the icon the following error messages appear:
“File not found or invalid”
“Error during the connection to 3D Warehouse”
I know that 3D Warehouse is not working with Make 2017 anymore. However, the component window was functional some weeks ago. So maybe the issue is on my side? As far as i am aware i did not change anything… Does anyone else have this problem?
Best regards and thank you!
Edit: I searched in this forum for solutions. One hint was to click on the icon, not on the text in the component window. However, same result: Clicking on the icon the error messages above appear. Clicking on the text a 3D Warehouse windows opens (but i know that this is not longer supported by Make 2017)
There may be more than one thing going wrong. I tested by search for poliform Zoe, and then trying to insert this one:
It works ok on Mac in 2017, but in Windows it fails with the error you showed in 2017, and fails silently in all other versions - up to 2022.
@TheGuz is it correct that Windows 2017 users cannot download from the search results in the Components tray, even though Mac users are allowed to? That aside, what is it about this model that makes it fail in all versions of SketchUp on Windows?
There seems to be a related issue with SketchUp for Schools. Models download ok on Mac, but with Windows it fails in Windows 11 under Parallels, works in Windows 11 on a mini PC, works in Windows 10 under Parallels, but fails on a Windows 10 desktop PC.
