How to Get Sketchup Free in 2019


Hey, what’s up, nation? In this session I’m gonna be teaching you
how you can get Sketchup for free in 2019. SketchUp 2019 is officially behind full-height paywall
and even 2018 was behind a full-height paywall But you can actually still use Sketchup for free if you go to app.sketchup.com,
there there are different paid options in here. But this web version of Sketchup allows you to use some of the basic features of Sketchup for free. So if I click “start modeling”,
there’s a bunch of stuff that you have to agree to, and you can start modeling. And the web app here is super simple,
very similar all the shortcuts work, it’s very similar the desktop version. So this is a great way to use Sketchup
if you just sort of want to try it out for a little bit and see if you like it
and model some pretty simple things. If you don’t want to use the Sketchup web app for whatever reason, maybe you don’t have an internet connection
or you would just like to use it offline. If you go to Sketchup.com and type in
/downloads/all. That’ll take you to SketchUp’s download page. And then here what you can do
is actually download a previous version of Sketchup. Sketchup make is the last free version that Sketchup had as a standalone version. So you can download Sketchup make 2017
and use it on your desktop. That’s completely free, and that’s a good option as well. The downside of using the Sketchup web app or the 2017 make version, that free version of Sketchup is that you’re not supposed to use those commercially. So the workaround for that
is to download a much older version of Sketchup that did allow use commercially with the free version. And Sketchup doesn’t support that
on their website anymore. So you have to find that elsewhere. And to do that we’ve set up a page at designer hacks
that goes through older versions of Sketchup being one of the free versions here. So if you come to this page
there’ll be a link in the description below. Alternatively, you can go to designerhacks.com/Sketchupfree and that will take you directly there. And you just scroll down here. What you want to go to is find Sketchup 7
and it’s only available for Windows. So if you click that, it’ll take you to a link. We’ve that out,
so some of these links take you to mirror sites. Or, I guess, most of them do. And we’ve send them there
and then we update this periodically just to make sure that the links are still fresh. You can go there, download Sketchup 7
and use that commercially. It won’t have all of the features that the new version has and some of the features don’t work anymore because of the way that Sketchup works. But the fundamentals are still there.
So that’s your other option. Hopefully this video helped! if you liked it, please don’t forget to like, subscribe and share this video with your friends. And as always, happy hacking!
