Sketch up Measurements

Post by Joshua3 » Thu Sep 15, 2016 1:38 am

After purchasing the plans, then downloading and reading your instructions on converting the measurements from metric to Imperial - I have noticed that I can not see any measurements when viewing the sketchup plans. Am I not enabling them correctly? Or are there no measurements on the sketchup plans to begin with?

I appreciate your help and am extremely impressed with the design!

Apologies for wasting space on the forum

I was making good progress with the plan I purchased and then I got a new computer. I downloaded the latest version of Sketchup Make and it refuses to be installed. I get this error message (see attached image) when I choose to "Install As Administrator". Does anyone have any ideas on this problem?

Thanks,
Jambeaux

Sorry, I cannot seem to get the image of the error message to upload

hi,
you should try to install the version that I have shared in this article/video, and following the same steps...try it and tell me if it works.

Thank you for your advice Suso. This is what I found:
As per your advice I went to sketchup.com and selected "download sketchup". The download went fine but the install failed. When I was installing it I saw that it was labeled "sktechup 2017". This is obviously a very new version of sketchup and that is possibly the problem. It may be optimized for Windows 10 and I am using Windows 7 . I use windows 7 because some of my critical software such as Sonar X3 Producer (music software) will not work in Windows 10. If you know of a way to get an older version of sketchup make let me know and I'll try that.

Thanks,
Jambeaux

hi,
If I can not see your computer it is difficult to know the error.
Try to install an older version like the 2013, it will be easy to find on the internet, and let me know if it works.
Also you can make a capture of the error you get and send it to me by email.
