SketchUp Extension Installer (rbz)

Post by AdamB » Wed Jan 20, 2016 8:42 am

Back in 2010 when LightUp was first launched, SketchUp had no support to install Plugins and Extensions. This meant LightUp had to have its own installer to copy files to the correct locations.

Starting with SketchUp 2015, there is now a built-in Extensions Installer that offers a simple method to install plugins via .rbz files. It lives in Preferences->Extensions->Install Extension

We have started to transition over to using the SketchUp Extensions Installer system for LightUp. Initially it will be for the free 30-day DEMO on WIndows.

Please let us know if you have questions are problems.

LightUp for Windows

To install LightUp for older versions of SketchUp without .rbz Extension support, you'll need to:

1. Add ".zip" to the download filename and double click to open it.
2. Drag the file "lightup.rb" and folder "lightup" to your SketchUp Plugins folder.

LightUp supports SketchUp 8, SketchUp 2013, SketchUp 2014, SketchUp 2015, Sketchup 2016
