Hello Kim B

This is the most frequently asked question. We have emailed a tutorial to your e-mail address upon registering, but we also have a youtube video on our website including a step-by-step explanation. www.rubysoft.eu

Let me answer it here also: the problem is that you are 'trying to put on your safety belt but still are outside of your car' :-)

Well first of all you need to know that all buttons in the toolbar will appear active (and in color) only when there is a possibility to use them! For example: changing a window to a high details setting without selecting it first, will not activate the 'change level of detail' button so it will remain grey.
What you do is first draw a rectangular shape on your model. Then select it: now you see that a new button lights up! Click it and accept all default values. Now you can tripple click on the inner side of the new frame and the 'fillings' toolbar will become active and you can add a window or door to your frame. Easy!
Here is the direct link to the tutorial page on our website with a video: http://www.rubysoft.nl/main-menu/3dwindow-tutorial-basics/

Good Luck

So I have downloaded this tool but can not access your website? is it down? Can not purchase a licence.

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Dear David K and all others who suffered as much as we did...

I am sorry for the inaccessibility of our website. Our provider is recovering from a major DDoS-attack on their network and we were one of many who lost connection to the virtual world for quite some time. :-(

For the inconvenience caused I am more than happy to offer you a promotion coupon for a 20%-discount on a FULL and LITE license. Use the applicable two words (with the dash): 'darn-ddos' on check-out, but act quickly: it is set to expire on April 1st.

Best regards from all of us,

Hii. i recently bought the LITE version of ruby window. I am currently using the 4.1 version and i don't understand how to update the 4.1.9 version. Please help.
Thanks :)

Hello Tanvi

Hello Tanvi,

How to install the plugin or how to install a new update?

On the home page www.rubysoft.eu you will always find the download button to the latest version since the Extension Warehouse is slow to process new versions.

* Goto www.rubysoft.eu and scroll down a bit.
* Click on the download button with your right mouse button and use SAVE AS… (if you see some scrambled page you have opened the software with some text editor. You should see a windows dialogue that wants to save a file named something like: RS_Window_RDT_*.rbz)
* Choose a location on your computer where you want the file to be downloaded to.
* Start SketchUp
* Go to Preferences, Extensions, Install Extension…
* Select the file you have just downloaded to your computer.
* Wait a few seconds and the latest version of the plugin has been installed.
* Now close SketchUp
* Restart SketchUp again to benefit from the most reliable and advanced version of 3dWindow.

Good luck,

Ruby Windows is an excellent pluyin. The service is incredible. There is actually someone on the other end - responding to the email! I am very happy that I took the chance I purchased this plugin. I look forward to working with Ruby on their new products!

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hi Ken,

Thank you for your nice comment. Yes there indeed is someone to respond to your email. Actually there is more than one but I have the privilege to take care of the interaction with clients. :-)

Enjoy SketchUp and RubySofts 3dWindow plugin!

Drawing windows and doors from scratch is a pain in the neck. I am so happy that I decided to buy 3d Doors Windows Frames. It’s so easy to use, draw a rectangle put in a few details like how far back from the wall exterior etc. and click the button - your window or door is implanted perfectly into the wall.
The most impressive part of buying this plugin is that if you have any problems as I did with the license. Alex is there every step of the way to get you up and running. A real gentleman.
Thanks Alex, Happy New Year
Cheers Barry

Great plugin and great service!!

Jack J.'s picture

Great extension!
Is there a student discount/extended trial/license for students?
I was happy with the first 5 windows I made, but now I've got about five more so I can finish this project, and I can't quite afford to buy the full license on a student budget.

Tyler S's picture

hey it wont work.

Ruby Soft HQ's picture


Hey! I never know how to respond to these kinds of messages...

Taking the time to write 4 words but not providing us with any information which could lead to a cause seems like a waste of everyones time. But you are also more than welcome to raise a ticket via support@rubysoft.eu.


Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hi Jack,

Thanks for your review and comment. Please send us an email at info@rubysoft.eu with some proof that you are a student and we will get back to you shortly with an offer that has suited many students.

Happy SketchUp-ing!

Designing windows and doors was such a pain earlier.. getting actual timber and cutting it into shape might have been faster! (;p) I am glad that I decided to use 3d Doors Windows Frames. It has immediately reduced the time I spent on preparing presentations for client's, significantly! Given the dynamic nature of building design/ architecture.. and the number of changes a design goes thru, before being finalized.. it's a bonus when you can get back to the client, with changes in place, sooner than they expected. Cheers!

What do whit this?

宁 翟's picture

Hey bro,I meet the same problem,do you solve it finally? what's your method?

Ruby Soft HQ's picture


We have an updated version of the plugin available for download. The problem resides in the non-Western use of characters. Your OS will probable support characters like 宁 翟 but the plugin has difficulties with it.
If you submit the error to support@rubysoft.eu we will see what we can do to fix it, but we cannot test it since we use other character sets on our computers. So we need some cooperation and patience from your side.


Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Dear Alexander,

I have emailed you an UTF-updated version of our software on the 9th of September to deal with the Cyrillic font on your computer. But it seems like you have not updated the old version.

You can delete the old one via the Menu option: Evaluate and then delete.

If you still can't get it to work: please use our helpdesk ticketing system. http://www.rubysofthelpdesk.eu/upload

Best Regards


Александр С's picture

I have no menu for you exention after setup. That the problem.


need it free

Jakub T's picture

srsly, its not that expensive

Brent H's picture

it's expensive if you have to buy it each year? I didn't know a window this year is different from a window next year??

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Our pricing policy is based upon the following consideration:
If you build SketchUp models and need windows frames and doors you could draw them yourself. Sure! Many people do so.

If you want to
* save time and speed up things without decreasing design and functionality,
* need flexibility in the process,
* want the ease of use (changing levels of detail for example in seconds) and so on and so forth,
then the fee for a license will outweight the challanges you might face desiging and implementing these yourself and the time you have to invest to get it properly done. For private users we have a LITE version and for commercial users a FULL version.

It is everyones personal decision and for many of our clients that wasn't a tough one at all. :-)


Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hi Rakibul Hasan

You need it free, we want world peace...
But neither is going to happen I am afraid.

We have granted a user a free license once but only because he asked it polite and had some serious and valid arguments.


Yamil M's picture

This extension isnt that special to have to pay for, ill just have to learn on how to make an extension and distrobute it for free that does the same as this. Bullcrap like this these days -_-

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hi Yamil

Thanks for your comment and especially the good news that SketchUp might welcome a new future plugin developer! We encourage this and are looking forward to enjoying your plugins.
Perhaps you haven't checked out all the features and powerfull possibilties of our plugin before reaching your conclusion. That would then be a pity.

Wishing you all the best in your endeavour!


Adrienne D.'s picture

This is probably one of the most positive and kind-hearted replies to an "Everything should be free" Internet complaint that I've ever seen! I use SketchUp maybe once a year, but I might just buy your plugin because you're obviously awesome and deserve to be rewarded for your awesomeness. ^_^

cheeto4493 ..'s picture

I agree to both parts of your response.

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hi Cheeto4493

You are also just too kind.
Thank you. It truely inspires to continue develop software!


(By the way: @Trimble, guys please put a decent sort on the comments... It will become unreadible this way. My comment on Adrienne should be above Cheeto's...)

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hello Adrienne D. and a Happy New Year!

Thank you for your comment! It is highly appreciated. :-)
Please drop me a private mail at: support@rubysoft.eu.

From all of us here at RubySoft: “Happy SketchUp-ing!”

Am just slowly exploring this Sketchup Environment and sometimes stabbing in the dark.
Still need to watch more practicle video tutorial applications to familirise me-self with features around.
I was brought up with AutoCADD as an architect had a taste of Revit - not bad!
I would like to be part of this Sketchup vision to grow further, so it be greatly accessible to the mass in liberating ones own creation.

seetharam G.'s picture

where can i find the serial number....?????

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hi Seetharam G.

We will email you a serial whenever you have bought a license from our webshop (www.rubysoft.eu).

If you feel like you have missed an email of have more questions please contact us via: sales@rubysoft.eu.

Do the doors have handle?

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hello Gwénaël,

No the doors do not have default handles, nor numbers, nor letterbox openings. Not even a 'Welcome' floor mat in front of them. There are a zillion possbilities which we cannot address all. But... SketchUp will give you the possibility to decorate the doors the way you like. I have examples send to me from our users.

The FULL version does have a 'User Component' function though that will offer the possibility to insert any SKP model as a filling into the design therefor covering for all of these zillions options :-)


Emmanuel A's picture

Thanks for this plugin it has made it more easier to fix doors and windows in SketchUp. I recommend for everyone if only you want work faster with your SketchUp Models.

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Thanks for your comments Emmanuel!

Gwénaël G's picture

Hi, do this plugin have a french language?

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hello Gwénaël

Bien sur!

(Brazilian) Portuguese, Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish & Romanian.

(And thanks to Patrice Naas for checking and correcting the French translations in version 4.1!)

Scott R's picture

I just got an error downloading saying this version is not compatible with Sketchup 2015...is there a newer version coming out?

Ruby Soft HQ's picture

Hi Scott,

We have tested this version to work on SU2015 but next Thursday (19th) we will send version 4 to Trimble to be placed in the Extension Warehouse. That one certainly will work with SU2015.

If you want to receive the release candidate already, drop me a line at info@rubysoft.eu.

Best Regards
