Web based version is an absolute dumpster-fire & I give up

I know programmers can’t plan for every possible event but holy ■■■■ how hard is it to create a menu? Last time I used Sketchup was like 7 years ago when it was still a download and it was simple to use. I’ve wasted ■■■■ near a f-ing hour trying to figure out how to import an existing component and not a single tutorial is for the web-based version. I have used nearly every CAD package in existence over the last 20 years and this is by far the saddest implementation of a free/lite CAD package I’ve ever used.

What a steaming pile of garbage. Sad too, because the first few years it was out it was a great little application that just about anyone with previous CAD experience could use.

You can still download the desktop version with the conventional UI https://www.sketchup.com/download/all.

In case you still need to know how to do that, either drag a SKP file from your desktop straight onto the scene in the browser window, or click the folder icon and choose Insert.
