I have been using Sketchup (free version) for years on my desktop computer. (Windows XP, Google SketchUp version 8.0.11752)
I am taking a class in design and thought I could download Sketchup (free version) on my laptop for class.
Silly me...I can't seem to find the Sketchup (free version) download page. I started here:
Step 1: selected the Personal Projects option. Now the screen says "SketchUp Make"
Step 2: selected Woodworking and Windows list options, entered my email address and check the agreement box.
Click the Download SketchUp Make button.
The computer does the download and installation.
When I click on the desktop SketchUp 2016 icon, The screen reads SketchUp Make and has a button for "Start Learning SketchUp" and "Buy SketchUp Pro"
Below those buttons, I selected the Woodworking Template and found a "Start using SketchUp button" to click.
When I view the Help, License dialog box, I read:
Licensed to: "SketchUp Make 2016 User, Pro Trial"
Expires: "March 28, 2016"
I thought SketchUp was free to use. Has it been changed since I downloaded version 8?
I don't want to start designing projects with a version that is going to expire in 30 days.
Does anyone know the answer? Did I download the wrong version? (If so, where is the free version download?)
Thanks for your help in advance.
