Sketchup Make first use


#1

Having seen the Sketchup video for beginners I decided to downloaded Sketchup Make as I’m interested in a free licence for home hobby use.

On launching, it opens as Style Builder 2017 and I do not get the “Welcome Screen” shown in the video, I get this:

Anyone know what’s going on?

Thanks,
Chal

You probably clicked the wrong icon. Try clicking SketchUp 2017 instead of Style Builder 2017.

Thanks but click where?
I clicked on the Sketchup Make link on their website to download and got a SketchUpMake-en-x64.exe which I installed. There is no Sketchup Make icon on my desktop, just Style Builder 2017.

Oops, found it!
There are three icons: Sketchup 2017 / Style Builder 2017 / Layout 2017. What’s the difference?
Thanks.

Here it is. Maybe Windows placed the Sketchup and Layout icons separate from the Style Builder icons because of how the existing icons were placed, I don’t know.

Style Builder and Layout are add-on apps that come as part of the Pro package. When you install Make you get a free 30-day trial of these. At the end of that time, the Pro features turn off and only Make remains.

Thanks everyone. All up and running now!
