Thank You

The problem is solved !

The files have not been installed in the right folder because of my User/Name wich is "François" with a "ç" !!!
Sketchup and 1001 bit Tools does not like "ç" and put installation in C:/Program and not in C/programData ......

hi, looks like your installation is not correct; or the files are not in the right folder.
The simplest way is to reinstall again.
Please make sure that you install using the 'install extensions...' button that comes with Sketchup.
Start Sketchup,
go to Window >> Preferences >> Extensions
You should see the button there, click to install using the rbz file.

I've worked it out

Here's what you have to do.
When you click sketchup / preferences / extensions in the menu bar at the top of screen
click on policy then click on unrestricted rather than Identified Extensions Only. When you go back to the general tab it will allow you to select 1001 bit tools or 1001 bit pro.

I just want to tell the creator of this, that I love you with all my heart, you are such a wonderful creative person. I will always be grateful for this freeware you made for all of us to enjoy! The world needs more people like you, people who help others' creativity to flourish. On behalf of all the artists out there, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hi guys the tools work on SU2016.
If you are facing problem running it, please send an email to help@1001bit.com

All plug-ins. This lil beauty pops up on hitting Install/Download...
'An AJAX HTTP erro occured. HTTP Result Code:500....
...500 Internal Server Error.. nginx'

How does one stay ahead of competition... when vibrant new customers starting to use your software cannot access plug-ins... It was one of the "selling points" for SU... time for greener pastures...


does the new 1001bit tool set work on 2015 model sketchup because it is not allowing me to use it on my other laptop
