I just purchased the book by Aron Dietzen. Now I’m trying to practise on chapter 3. Attempts to download the example file accordingly fails and shows only the “empty” vignet - no matter how I type the namr or the url complete (p.59)! Pretty annoying as I succeeded on chapter 2 a week ago!
Open the 3D Warehouse UI in SketchUp and search for Taking SketchUp Pro to the Next Level - Chapter 3 in Models. You can download the file right into Sketchup.
When you’re ready for Chapter 4 use the same search but change the chapter number.
@TheOnlyAaron, you might want to fix the preview for Chapter 4. It’s blank.
Downloading it into SketchUp does show the model stuff.
Huh… I must have made an update and not zoomed out or something… or the gremlins in 3DWH decided to mess with me
Thanks, Dave! I will take a look!!
Yeah, I tried that - but the reason I connect here is that no matter what - I get this desatisfying result!
(A detail might be I’m a Danish citisen normally living in Copenhagen - now on holiday in Brazil)
Try it from the 3D Warehouse interface inside of SketchUp and include all of the text I showed in italics.
I have tried this and gives the previous empty result.
When omitting the Chapter number I see only files for Chapter 13, Chapter5 and Chapter 2:
It shouldn’t have anything to do with your location but maybe it does. It looks like you added a hyphen after the word Chapter. With no hyphen after ‘Chapter’ and no chapter number I see this.
Maybe @TheGuz has some insight.
…yeah maybe…( I always like a little hypen once and a while ;-)) Seems you did a reset and after logon I received the Chapter 3!
I’m not sure what you mean. I didn’t reset anything.
Leaving out the extra hyphen got it sorted?
Good that you can proceed.
Well after receiving the email I was forced to logon - wich I enterpreted as a reset of my profile.
The remark on the hypen was just a bad joke - as I never notised I might have typed it. But anyway - loading the 3D warehouse now and typing “taking SketchUp Pro” now lists Chapters 2, -4, -5, -13 and -3 along with “Creating a Kalasnikov”, “Bounce Tower” and “Split-Level House”! Thats even more that I had been bargain for!
