Welcome to our forums! Please introduce yourself :)

Hi! My name is Don. I am retired, having spent most of my working years in sales (B2B/Wholesale) in the automotive industry. I am currently using SketchUp Shop. Now that I am retired and moved into a new (for me) house I have time to pursue my woodworking hobby. So far I’ve used SketchUp to create small projects - that is except for the 8’ x 8’ bar I built last year. My main problem is that I use SketchUp infrequently, so actually learning it is an issue. I take three steps forward and then two back so when I use it again I forgot most of what learned the last time.

I use Windows 10 and a pretty goof Nvidia card so rendering the models is not a problem.


Hello All
I am Ravi Shankar Kumar from India, having experience of more than 4 years in working with a development team that is going to solve the real-world problem of AEC.

I would be happy to connect with all

Thanks again

Hello, I’m new here. I’m still learning to use SketchUp but have run into a problem, which is why I have joined.

Salut à tous.
J’ai pratiqué longtemps SU avant de me tourner vers Blender.
Je reviens à Sketchup que je trouve plus simple pour créer mes fichiers SLT (imprimante 3D).
Je travaille avec la version PRO sur un PC Windows 10 pro et une carte GTX 1070. J’utilise quelquefois mon vieux MacMini 2011 relié directement à mon imprimante 3D.
Bonne journée à toute la communauté.

Hi, my name is Marta and I am from Poland :slight_smile:
My profession is landscape architecture but the only one thing what I like to do is 3D modeling so I never worked as a landscape architect.
I use SketchUp professionally
Hmmm I met SketchUp at the University and I love components.
I think I am intermediate because still have problems with dynamic components and quad modeling.
I haven’t go to 3D Basecamp.
I work on PC, SketchUp Pro 2021.
I have one link with my models 3D models by mARTon3D (@Marta4) - Sketchfab

Hi! I’m Michael Courtney - Once I’m cool enough I’d appreciate it if everyone referred to me as Mad Mike Da Money Maker… No? ok then ill just go back to my corner… On a serious note tho, glad to be here! Thanks for creating this platform.

Oh ok… so Im from a little forgotten town deep in the south tip of Texas on the Gulf border of Mexico called Harlingen. I think this used to be the bottom of a lake at one time.

I gotta admit, I have not read all the forum posting rules but Im assuming that we shouldn’t post links so Ill just stay safe and stay away from doing that, but I am a self proclaimed 3d Floor plan architect. In my head Im already famous even tho I wear the same shirt 3 times a week but i wash it the same amount of times. Not because Im poor but because I love the shade of blue this shirt has. My poorness is a topic for another day jk

Just in case you missed it, the Forum’s rules are the bulk of the FAQ at FAQ - SketchUp Community.
And here’s an animation of how to get there without a link - done in a full, non-mobile, browser. Starting point is the upper/right of any page on this forum:
How to find the SketchUp Forum Rules - aka the FAQ!

Finally, I’d like to commend you on starting to fill out your Forum profile! Too many people who are new to the forum don’t maintain it - and the information in it often helps people here answer questions you might ask - especially if the problem you report might be related to either the hardware or Operating System you use!

However, your profile information could stand a few tweaks - specifically:

  • Are you using the Web Version (Shop or Free) or the downloaded version available only through SketchUp Pro? It’s unclear ONLY because you also say your version is “Trial”.
  • If you’re using SketchUp Pro - as downloaded to run locally (as opposed to SketchUp Shop - with IS included with a SketchUp Pro subscription) - What major VERSION of SketchUp. As you say you’re new, the right answer is probably “2022” - but could be “2021” as 2022 was only release in the last week or two!
  • What version of Windows? Ideally, the build number - which you can find through the Settings App in Windows → System → About - listed as “OS Build” under “Windows Specifications” if you have (I think) Windows 10 or later. Not sure how to find it for older Windows versions!

Hi all,

I’m a user from Germany who still uses Sketchup 2017 on MacOS 10.10. I’ve done some nice work with it for buidling our house.

It is amazing how simple and efficient SU was to use. So I prefer it for drawing other stuff, too.

Hi all
I am from India. recently i came to know about Sketchup. Help me out here.

Welcome, if you have questions you can make a new topic about it, explaining wat it is that you have problems with.

This doesn’t help you, as it doesn’t help us understand your problem…

Hello all. New to the forum. Just purchased Sketchup Shop and can’t get it to load. Only me free ver will work. I plan to use shop ver for personal use for home wood projects. I’m using a macOS High Sierra v10.13.6, 8gb ram & Intel HD Graphics 4000 - 1536mb. Any help would be greatly appreciated…

Try signing out of SketchUp Free and then sign in again using the e-mail address and password you used when you purchased SketchUp Shop.

Stand by while I try…
