What is plan for Trimble Connect in SketchUp?


Trimble Connect is integrated as a native feature inside SketchUp 2024, and Trimble Connect extension was updated with mention user does not recommend for use.

But the main reason I use Trimble Connect extension because of Collaboration Manager with Todo, and ability to Import Visual Reference Model. What can I do without these features with new Trimble Connect in SketchUp 2024?

I am using the Trial version of 2024 (I have the pro version of 2023, and the licence will be replaced in June with 2024). I use the reference function in Connect to help me manage very large models to split them into sections and allow other users to work in collaboration on one project. I don’t see the same Trimble Connect toolbar allowing me to publish, reference and update reference files within my working model. Is this just because I am using the trial version or is this a permanent omission??

If you have Pro 2023 you should not need trial of 2024, just sign in and go…

If you need the function from the old extension - you can still grab it from the extension warehouse.

Tried adding the 2023 licence and it said it wasn’t valid

That worked thank you, and so much faster at importing reference files than that in 2023

They said, “no longer recommended for use”.

My workflow base on it and I need to know their (Trimble) plan with this “core feature”. When the Trimble Connect stops to support that extension… etc.
