SketchUp Web Services Unavailable

SketchUp Web Services Unavailable

Web services will become unavailable inside of unsupported versions of SketchUp as of the end of January 2023.

Messages informing users will appear within the affected areas of SketchUp.
Users can dismiss this message, and it will not return until January 1st 2023, from when it will need to be dismissed once per day until the end of service (example images below).

SketchUp 2020 users have a longer grace period, as this is the first time the 'End of Life' policy is being enacted in this way. The SketchUp 2020 cut-off is the 1st of July 2023.

It is important to note that this will affect users of older perpetual licenses for extensions such as V-Ray, where the plugin does not function with newer versions of SketchUp. Contact us if you wish to upgrade to the latest version of SketchUp and/or V-Ray.
