I have successfully installed and used this great plugin before on SU 2013, but during a reinstallation I unintentionally erased the old plugin folder. I have just been trying to install it anew both on 2013 and 2014, but without success. On 2013 the plugin and toolbar was installed but didn't work, on 2014 nothing happened. I tried both the extension warehouse version and the one from 1001bit's homepage (the freeware version). After stupidly trying several times I noticed that the error notice on 2014 said that 1001bitloader.rb (or similar) wasn't found in "C:/1001bitfreeware" which is of course is a folder that doesn't exist. So I simply copied the 1001bitfreeware folder from the plugin directory (installed from the homepage for good measure) to the C: root directory and now the plugin works without fail! (At least on 2014 but that's the preferred outcome for me.) So it seems the plugin is looking for it's files in the wrong place, which I guess should be easy for the developer to fix.
Many thanks for at great plugin!
Regards T

I never got the 'freeware' version to work at all, using Sketchup 2013, in Win8. I finally moved on to trying the Pro version; after following the detailed instructions and adapting to my system, the "Pro v.2" trial is working for me.

I was never able to unzip it within the plugins folder during my attempts - always unzipped within my downloads folder, then copied the two files one folder, one .rb) thus created into the plugins folder.

You DO have to run Sketchup "as admin" (google that if you need) in order to get 1001bit started the first time, and after doing so, enter the trial activation code (which is very long, and comes in an email to you).

USA reseller & tech support appears DOA - no answer to email and website not found. Oddly, it might be hard for me to pay someone to use this.

hi guys,
Please download the latest version from our website here:

The stability issue with SU2014 is fixed in the latest version.

(we cannot put it here because the there's some format difference between our code and the format that extension warehouse requires. sorry...)

Great plugin. Thank you. Using since SU8.
Unfortunately i have a problem about SU 2014. I tried many times to install it.
Despite of the message shown "installed succesfully", plugin doesn't seem in the menu.
And next time i opened the program, i m facing 1001bit.rb not found.
Can you help me?

im having the same problem and someone mentioned caps lock not working, mine is not even on so i dont understand fully what they meant. I installed it twice and still its some parts of tool bar I cant click on to use. I even tried the drop down menu and thats not working. I know I'm still new to working with the program but my other tool bars work just fine. even a few extensions I have added. If anyone can help us we would gladly appreciate it.

I don't know install....... and I can't find it anywhere

Kevin C's picture

I installed and everything seemed to work. However, when I try to use any of the buttons on the window it doesn't do anything at all? I have checked everything from folders to downloading sketchup 8 again and also this plugin. I am running on Windows 7. Help Please.

Note: When I click on the button icons no toolbar pops up at all.
