I have been using google sketch up for a long time and i have been using if for official purpose and google sketch up is now used in our Office for main purpose of Interior and exterior Design. I love this Plugin though new updates can be done. Love it.

Hey guys

I cant download the 30 day trial from their website because it says that version of recaptcha is down, and ever since then I cant download the 30 day free trial, if you guys could give me a hand on how to fix the issue that would be awesome ;)

kind regards

Great tool, makes drawing and modeling much quicker and easier, especially for a beginner. But how do you generate reports to include rafter lengths and total number of rafters by component sizes?

Mad cool !

Огрмный респект. Спасибо автору. Очень помогло начинающему конструктору.

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

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.

Just awesome! Thank you so much for this extension!
Even with having revolve, line extend and fillet functions is so handy, nevertheless it has much more that that. A must have!

Tamara K's picture

Do you provide any tutorial on how to use your plugin. It seems great, but if you don’t know how to use it, it is just a load of icons. Please send me a link to any video tutorials. Thank you.

GOH CH's picture

Hi we don't have a tutorial for freeware version; but you can download the tutorial for pro version here : http://www.1001bit.com/pro/1001bit_pro2_user_guide.zip
most of the tools works the same.

The Chamfer and Fillet tools do not work well on rounded solids' edges. Trying to fillet a cylinder is impossible

simply great! installed it under 2014 although it should already be compatible with Su 2014 but worked great from the beginning. I had some splashes but the time safing by this plugin allows for 10 crashes /h!!!

GOH CH's picture

hi everyone,
I have already uploaded the version fixed for 2014 to the extensions.warehouse for validation and testing. Once they have gone through the program, it should be ready for download.
Meanwhile, you can also download from our website:

Please feel free to try out!
Thanks for your support!
