Terrain: biggest upgrade to the functionality of the software… I tested the accuracy of the terrain vs real world surveys and laser scans and it was spot on accurate – surpassing the accuracy from the standard SkechUp terrain.
PlaceMaker data and 3D models can be accessed in two ways.
This option allows you to download the extension for free. OpenStreetMap and Microsoft data (buildings, roads, paths, trees, water) can be previewed for free at the location of your choice, but you will need to purchase credits (starting at $15 for 100 credits) to import the models, aerials, and terrain for a chosen location. Your license and credits do not expire and will automatically transfer if you purchase a subscription in the future!
PlaceMaker can be purchased as an annual subscription which comes bundled with 1000 Credits! The Subscription provides access to much of the data for free (does not require any credits) or at a discount. You’ll also receive the Building Bundle Component Library for FREE! If you purchased credits using a Pay-As-You-Go license, any remaining credits will transfer over to your new subscription automatically. You also get a discount each year when renewing your subscription!
Please note that you need SketchUp version 2016 or newer to use the PlaceMaker Plugin.
For volume licensing, be sure to input the quantity of licenses you require for your organization when filling out the order form. For orders of 5 licenses or more, we offer volume license discounts. Please contact us to request at discount coupon if you would like to order 5 or more licenses.
Educational and Non-Profit Licensing
We no longer provide Educational or Student licenses. We encourage students to use the new Pay-As-You-Go license as it will likely be the least expensive option for them.
For non-profit, classroom or lab volume license purchases, please contact us to request a quote for discounted pricing.
The Building Bundle is a huge SketchUp component library of pre-made building components to add more detail to any of your SketchUp models.
