Get some money from the SketchUp folks. The method is a bit longwinded but it’s well worth the effort.
Instead of producing a late-night infomercial for SketchUp Pro (Buy two copies, get a free pocket protector), we decided to go a simpler route: Helen put together a promo code that knocks $100 US off the price of a single-user Pro license (it’s normally $495). European and UK customers save 20%, which works out to about the same thing.
Here’s the catch: Chris designed the promo coupon into a LayOut 2 doc – you’ll need to have LayOut 2 installed on your computer to open the file and read the coupon. If you haven’t already, you can download a trial version of SketchUp Pro 7 (which includes LayOut 2) in order to open the file. Sneaky, no?
