I am a SketchUp user and I have been for 10 years or so (I own a permanent licence). I am quite upset because I just read that, within days, people will not be able to download models in the 2017 version. What I really don’t like about that, even if it does not affect me directly, is there is NO technical reason to do that: the only reason is to push people to buy the next version (which you can’t, by the way, because you only can subscribe to the service now). That would not be too bad if at least the program was improved, but it hasn’t really that much since Trimble bought it and it is a shame because I work with surveys all the time and I was very much hoping that Trimble would use their expertise to improve the software in that direction, but SketchUp is really not much different from what it used to be, a wonderful program, but not thanks to Trimble. I would rather learn another software than be forced to pay money every year to have nothing in return. At the very least please bring back to option to buy the software.
