Sketchup Make 2017

Installation troubleshooting for SketchUp 2017 and IRender nXt

It's possible that the files that we install to let SketchUp 2017 find our plugin did not get installed into the proper location.

If you are having problems installing into SketchUp 2017, read the comments below.

By default, we install the ruby files in your ProgramData folder.

If you have ever wanted to visualise your designs and have a really good think through before you start actually making them, Sketchup Make is definitely a t. Make sure you select SketchUp MAKE 2017! Make contains a 30-day trial of Pro to let you test out the Pro features. Once the 30 days are over, the Pro features turn off and the free features remain. If you depend on SketchUp’s professional modeling and documentation features for your work, we hope you’ll consider purchasing SketchUp Pro. Software Name: SketchUp Make 2017 (x64) Version: 17.2.2555: Platform: WindowsVendor: Trimble, Inc. Architecture: 64-bit: Download Path: SketchUpMake-en-x64.exe.

Note: On your machine, the 'ProgramData' folder may be spelled differently, for your version of Windows.

Run the installation again, choosing the Reinstall choice, and notice where we are installing the SketchUp plugin files.

You should see SketchUp 2017 listed as one of the plugin folders that we will populate:

After reinstalling, here are some instructions to check the installation location:

C:ProgramDataSketchUpSketchUp 2017SketchUpPlugins

Look in that folder in Windows File Explorer, and make sure there is a folder called RPS_IRender_nXt and a file called RPS_IRender_nXt.rb:


Note: If you don't have the View option for showing known extensions un-checked, you will just see the file as being named 'Rps_IRender_nXt'.

You can change the Folder View Options, if you want to check the .rb extension:

If that file and folder are not there, then you will need to reinstall IRender nXt and make sure that the Ruby Plugins files get installed into your ProgramData folder.

After reinstalling, if IRender nXt still does not load, please do this:

Sketchup Make 2017 Serial Number

Start SketchUp and open the SketchUp Ruby Console window:


Type, or use Copy and Paste (Note the single quote marks and the backwards slashes used here.):

load 'RPS_IRender_nxt.rb'

in the ruby console window, and then click Enter.

Then enter this line:

load 'RPS_IRender_nXtRPS_IRender_nxt2.rb'

and also try entering the full path for the file to load:

load 'ProgramDataSketchUpSketchUp 2017SketchUpPluginsRPS_IRender_nXtRPS_IRender_nXt2.rb'


Then copy all the text that appears in the Ruby Console and send it to us.

Hopefully all of that will give us a clue, if there is an error message or the files cannot be found to load.
