More Fredo6 plugins becoming paid extensions

Postby fredo6 » Sun Feb 27, 2022 1:48 pm

After more than ten years of free distribution, some of my plugins will become paid extensions.

Precisely, these are:
  • RoundCorner
  • JointPushPull
  • Curviloft
  • FredoScale
  • ToolsOnSurface
  • TopoShaper
  • Curvizard
  • VisuHole
The transition will take place as of March 1st 2022.

After a 30-day free-trial period, these extensions will require a Sketchucation license.
Price is USD 12 per plugin, or USD 40 for the bundle of all 8 plugins. Sketchucation Premium members have a significant discount on this pricing.

IMPORTANT: You need to install or upgrade to Sketchucation Extension Store v4.2.4 or above.

Given the sophistication of the plugins and constant updating you provide, they are worth it!
Is the payment a "one-off" purchase, or a rolling subscription?

Excellent! It's time you were compensated for your hard work and attention.

Can we just go ahead and buy the licenses now?

Hello I have searched a lot today to understand why these plugins no longer worked overnight.

I now understand why, too bad for the users, but for you it's a good thing. Indeed, your plugins are really great, I use them every day and they are among my top plugins.

Tomorrow, I'm getting down to buying all of these plugins.

Thanks @David R, for the link to this post.

Hi Fredo,
been using your plugins since ages,
I am a single person free lancer, and am in need of a single seat liscence.
went to buy the 8 plugin pack for 40usd, and found it to be good for 3 seats...
Is it possible for you to offer any discount for a single seat requirement for the plugins pack...
Will be of great help...40usd is a bit steep for me at the moment.
Will understand if u do say no.
Any ways, Sketchup is incomplete without Fredo plugins.

Regards..
Shomit

I did send a PM, but seems u have your mail box flooded.

The payment page says perpetual liscence, means one time pay for the plugin, but no details about how we are covered or not in case of updates.

Guess Fredo can clea that detail.

Just tried Curviloft on my PC and it works just fine. Did he say that existing installs would stop working?

Licensing is independent from the download and upgrade of the extension. so you can upgrade at will. Similarly, it is independent from the version of Sketchup, past and future.

Thery are if you change to Full list.

Better, choose the Full List in the Extension Store tool. You have to have it installed anyway for the licenses to work and you might as well use it to install the extensions so it can help you keep them up to date.

I would like to purchase the bundle. Two questions:
- I already have a FredoCorner license installed. Can they be installed together or is there an upgrade to the bundle license?
- How can i register a VAT number?

FredoCorner is a separate license to the RoundCorner that is in the Bundle. They are 2 different products.
Once you have made your purchase just drop me a line at support@sketchucation.com with the details you would like to appear on the invoice and I will get it to you.

Cheers
Anne

Dear Fredo,
I just purchased the bundle pack, and received the liscences.
Your contribution, just like the other devs, has been phenomenal and I feel blessed for souls like u exist and make things simpler and better.
Thanks a lot,
Starting my use of the paid plugins.

Regards,
Shomit

Good afternoon! Curviloft stopped working correctly. I reset the settings to the default settings and now I get an inscription that the trial period expired in December.
I live in Ukraine, we are at war ((I hoped that I could buy plugins after the end of the war, because without them, dear Fredo, work in SketchUp is completely different (. But I can’t afford to buy now.
I wish you all peace and health! This is the most important thing in life!

I'm so glad that Fredo is finally getting paid for his brilliant tools! I bought every one that I hadn't already purchased immediately, updated them all, but when I go to enter my paid-for license info in the contextual drop down menu for each of the tools, nothing happens when I click on "License", so I can't enter the info. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Is it because I'm still using SU2021 (waiting for a new computer this month)? I doubt it, but I can't think of anything else. Thanks in advance for clearing this up for me. As is pretty standard among SU users, I can't do my work without these incredibly essential tools.

Make sure you have the latest version of the Sketchucation Extension Store tool installed.

Thanks, Dave, I'm always amazed by how you respond to everyone, even when some of these inquiries can be a little tedious to non-newbies. You're a kind, cool guy.

I did, in fact, make sure that I had the latest Sketchucation Extension Store tool installed...(v4.2.4) and double-checked every tool for its latest version. Still it's a no go. I just can't figure out what could be causing nothing to happen when I try to input my license info on all Fredo's tools. I just tried again to input license info for Tools on Surface and I was surprised to actually get a response/message: you have to have Extension Store v3.1 or above installed, (which I had) but I doubled checked again just to insure that I had v4.2.4. (which was noted at the top of the Extension Store window). Then I decided to try "reinstalling" 4.2.4 version of Extension Store and when I tried again to input at the License button in the pulldown of the tool, now, instead of any sign of activity, AGAIN nothing. I'm totally out of ideas.

You're quite welcome.

I guess since you've updated to the latest Sketchucation Extension Store, the next thing I would do is quit SketchUp and do a power off reboot. Then start up again and try. Wouldn't hurt to clear internet caches, too.
