It certainly wouldn't have been a lot of money for my Eagle Vision
TSi. What a PITA! The plug wires were threaded under the intake
manifold. The book time was 3-1/2 hours. I got so I could do replace
them in 45min[*]. Good profit item.
[*] After the third or fourth time, I found out why the kept blowing
out. The gap was misprinted on the plate in the engine compartment.
It specified .065" instead of .035". Opps. The car required MoPar
wires, too. The after-market wires didn't fit.
From 1984 to 2010, NUMMI (New United Motors Manufacturing Inc.,
a joint venture between Toyota and GM) built Nova's, Prizm's, Hilux,
Voltz (a version of the Pontiac Vibe), Tacomas, and the Corolla in California.
GM pulled out when it went bankrupt in 2009 and Toyota closed the
plant the next year.
The plant is now cranking out Tesla Model S.
Most changes by Trimble have been 'under-the-hood' and barely noticeable
as far as 3D modeling/drawing capability from previous versions.
I have noticed an increased sensitivity to axis/plane issues, especially
with imported files (.dwg) that may contain "Layer" information in the
But that is not necessarily a bad thing once you realize that this is
due to an increased, more faithful reproduction of the imported original
into SketchUp, and that "layers" are handled differently in CAD vs 3D
What you make on the bananas, you lose on the grapes...
Pretty much the same however there are a couple of extra icons, the one
that comes to mind is the arc icon/pie icon.
Plugins are now handled differently and some of the older non approved
plugins no longer work. I have not had too much of an issue with that
as there are still a load to choose from if the one you had no longer works.
Better than v5, v6, v7? Most likely. But Sketchup 8 is also free if it
is still available.
Better than v2013 or v2104, not from my experience.
FWIW Sketchup Make is simply the new name for the free version.
Sketchup has had a free version since IIRC V4. Unless you are a pro
there is no reason to move to the "pro" version.
Don't fear upgrading, the install for later versions are separate. You can
have multiple versions installed on your computer. Just be aware that any
drawings that are made from an earlier version and opened/modified under a
later version should be saved with a unique name. Older files saved under
later versions will no longer be able to be opened with an earlier version.
One of the biggest negatives is the $$$ cost for using sketchup
professionally. Much more dollars than expected.
I know, they are in business to make money. But I was shocked at the new
I actually thought it was pretty reasonable, but then again I was using
AutoCAD LT until about 6 years ago. That program got ridiculous in price
even it you renewed as often as they wanted. AND it is only 2D. Upgrading
that program is about 7 times the expense of up grading SU Pro each year
and initially about twice the expense to initially purchase.
IMHO it works.
Just use heavy wax coating.
OR, use the nylon type glides that they sell that you staple in, on the
front end. That lets the drawer slide well and that wears over time and
is the sacrificial piece.. LONG TIME.
