    I need some help. I bought a new computer and installed Sketchup make, but when I try to download a plan it will not open. What do I need to do to get the plans to open. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I installed Sketchup Make 2017 x64 version. I also downloaded the Panel Gauge model and then double-clicked on the skp file which opened the application. After setting the template (Woodworking - Millimeters) and accepting the license agreement, the model opened successfully.

    A couple of ideas you may want to try;

    • Can you launch SketchUp Make and create a new model without any issues?
    • Can you open Jerry's model after you have launched Sketchup Make?
    • Can you try a different model?

    If you are still struggling, you can send me a private message and I will see if I can help you further.

    Thanks for the help Rob. I followed the steps you suggested and had no problem opening the plans. I just bought a new computer and having to deal with Windows 10 for the first time. It makes me want to go back to Mechanical Drawing. I really appreciate the help.

    I hear you. Anyway the offer still stands. Let me know if you need help. I can set up a Go To Meeting to see if I can resolve the problem with you.
