Three Sketchup File Management Tips – Free Version

Video - February 26, 2021

All of our plans for TWW and the Wood Whisperer Guild are made using Sketchup Pro. When we distribute the files to users, some folks are unable to open them because Pro files aren’t compatible with older free versions of the software like Make 2017. What many people don’t realize is that the free web version of Sketchup is a pretty powerful tool in its own right, and even if you don’t want to use it on a regular basis, you can still use it to manage/convert files. This video will show you how to do the following:

  • Open and navigate files in SketchUp Free
  • Access your files via the cloud
  • Convert files to an older version, such as Sketchup Make 2017
