Installing this program has been my worst nightmare. Have downloaded/deleted the programs 3 times and still can’t locate the plug-in folder and can’t determine where to put the unzipped files.
Downloaded Sketchup to: c:\program files/sketchupforgoogle-sketchup.exe. There is no folder and no other files.
Downloaded latest version of cutlist, un-zipped it and moved it to program files. There are 2 files shown.
Now how do i get Sketchup to recognize the plugin.
Usually the main program is in a folder or location and the plug ins are merely added to the folder.
I would appreciate anyone’s help. I am running Windows XP Pro service pack 3

If you are using XP 32bit- it should be setup as-

C:\Program Files\Google\Google SketchUp 8\Plugins\cutlist

Here’s a link for some help on installing plugins-

I have Windows 7. It looks like you are not installing the correct program? go to and download the file sketchupwen.exe. Run that file and it will install Sketchup on your computer.

Then under C:\Program Files you should see a folder call Google and so on.

Thanks for the info. guys. I have just found the solution and was about to post a cancellation. Stupid me was looking thru files for “Sketchup” and here it all was under “Google”. I know the history of the program and it would seem that the new owner would have gotten around to changing the file and program names. You almost never see it referred to as “Google Sketchup”,but just Sketchup.
After a lot of time and pain i found the solution here on daltxguy’s blog. Will wait another day to recover and then download/install Cutlist. More questions will probably follow.
Thanks again.

Have your say...
