1001bit freeware doesn't work with SU2013. I tried with 1001bit (30 days free trial version) it works well.
I understand there are 2 versions. In one hand a free one with basic functions and other hand a most complete one but not free. However, the problem is why one version works on SU2013 and not the other while these 2 tools are based on the same principe ?

hi Bernard,
Both version should work on SU 2013 because they are all working on pretty much the same codes. The Pro version just have a lot more options and tools that's all. Issue with SU2013 might be due to installation, i recall back then, you need to run SU2013 as administrator for some plugins to work because of security issues.
Anyway feel free to send an email to help@1001bit.com if you need any assistance.

I solved the issue describe above by installing an older version of 1001bit v1.0.5.

Some problems with SU 2016 Doors and window frames dont work

GOH CH's picture

hi Richard,
I tested the tools on SU 2016 and it worked fine on my PC. There are times where it takes longer for the system to process and you get a message that Sketchup is not responding or it looks as if Sketchup has frozen. Please wait a while and it's probably still working in the back ground.
This is quite common for the roof rafter tool which requires a lot of computations.

click tools, nothing happens... pretty much what everyone else has been saying.

GOH CH's picture

issues with buttons not functioning can be solve in 2 ways;
1st: install the tool using the 'install extensions' button that comes with SketchUp.
i.e. go to menu >> Window >> Preferences >> Extensions
you should see an 'Install extensions' button at the bottom,
click on that and then select the 1001bit_freeware_v1.0.x.rbz file
That normally solves the issue.

If that doesn't another possibility is that there is a character in your username that is causing some issue with the program path;
you can by pass that by moving the 1001bit_freeware folder to c:\

Find your 1001bit_freeware folder; for Windows, it should be at
C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\SketchUp\SketchUp 2015\SketchUp\Plugins
then move the 1001bit_freeware folder to c:\ directory.
i.e. the 1001bit_freeware folder's final path is c:\1001bit_freeware

This should by pass the special character in the path.
please note that you need to keep the 1001bit_freeware.rb file in the plugins folder. Move only the 1001bit_freeware folder.
that should solve the issue.

If that doesn't please send me an email to help@1001bit.com
I'll troubleshoot your installation for you.
