Note: The desktop version is the release we are licensed for. There are more features in the browser version which is regularly updated. You will need to create an online Trimbl SketchUp account which allows you to store your CAD files. There is a storage limitation with the free browser version so if you use SketchUP heavily you may need to download your completed files to clear your storage space or upgrade your account. There are some great features in the paid accounts. Active Maintenance required to download Crate Pro CAD files so make sure you keep a copy of the SKP download in a secure location.
