Is Sketch up free? timer? Licence?

Hey all Caddies:

interesting 3 D applications in Sketch up.

I have downloaded Sketch up and its on a minute timer with full access to Sketch up pro for about 7 days worth of time; I haven't received a licence and thought this "Sketchup" was free; what happens when the timer runs out? where can I find a licence for free? :NC

Cheers BC Dave

Sketchup is free and it looks like they allow you to use the pro version (which is not free) for the first 8 hours. I was able to do everything I need with the 'non-pro' version.

Just looked at their website, did you download SketchupMake or SketchupPro? Make should be free...

I downloaded the SketchupMake (I think ...) it auto download make & pro together; so I got SketchupPro trial and I think that what's on the trial timer for 8 hours; but the licencing info is blank ... I'll have to check the computer I downloaded it on yesterday... :twisted:

----------------------------------------------

ok I checked; the download is Sketch up Make, version 13.x; from what I gather once the timer runs out; I'll no longer have access to the pro trial version; and its on an 8 hr timer that runs when the program open ... so hopefully make is operational after the trial is over.

Sketchup 8 is free and it can do all is needed to build a trailer 3D model and more.
I found that latest Sketchup Make does NOT have some important features that this older version has.

US version can be downloaded from here - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/zxxkny5pi5xbxfw/GoogleSketchUpWEN_US.exe?token_hash=AAGBtzuGeOGzQaSb84dVkyCdSh1r_x1oIh94ex-PwjNq7Q&dl=1


I had some difficulty learning sketchup, but then I found this below website that allowed me to learn and be very productive with the sketchup in a very short time. There are good video tutorials, I really liked them - http://jayscustomcreations.com/sketchup/

I hope it will help some people who are looking to learn and use the Sketchup

Cheers!
