Thanks to the efforts of the Western Pennsylvania Woodworkers club, I’ll be teaching a two-day SketchUp class the weekend of October 13-14, 2018 in Pittsburgh. There are a few seats available for non-members and because of the club sponsorship the price is better than usual. I will also be giving a presentation to the club Friday evening on my work and why knowing how to use SketchUp will make you a better woodworker. Guests are welcome on Friday.

Details and registration on my website at this link.

Hi Scott,

I’m assuming you’re referring to a “free for personal use” version of SketchUp that you can download and install on your own computer. There has been a change with the latest release of SketchUp Pro 2018. Up until this year SketchUp Make (the free version) was updated along with SketchUp Pro on an annual basis. That changed this year, but SketchUp Make 2017 is still available and will be for the foreseeable future. SketchUp has introduced a web-based version of it’s software called SketchUp Free. If you have a decent internet connection it’s about the same as SketchUp Make. Things aren’t the way they were, but it isn’t the end of the SketchUp world.

I wrote about this in some detail on my blog, click here to read the post (and find the link to download SketchUp Make 2017).
