 Stand Alone Podium Browser 2020 SketchUp extension

The stand alone Podium Browser 2020 is a SketchUp extension for customers that do not have SU Podium V2.6. It requires a purchase and with the purchase a license key, that is very different from the SU Podium V2.6 license key, is emailed to you.

After installing Podium Browser 2020 stand alone, open Podium Browser

  1. Click the box icon to open Podium Browser, then click the gear icon next to the home button.
  2. Click Activate License in the license manager.
  3. Copy your Podium Browser licene key into the field. Do not type any spaces before or after. License is case sensitive.
  4. Click Activate license and then close the license manager.
  5. The gear icon should turn yellow after you have successfuly activated your license.
  6. Select Function key F5 or right click on the browser and select Reload.

 Web Version of Podium Browser (outside of SketchUp)

The web version of Podium Browser works outside of SketchUp. It was created for customers who are experiencing a SketchUp bug that does not allow internet access from inside SketchUp. The web version can be activated by both a stand alone Podium Browser 2020 license or a SU Podium V2.6 license.

Open the web version from any browser. https://v4.pdm-plants-textures.com/index.html

  1. At the top of the web page, click the gear icon next to the home button.
  2. Click Activate License in the license manager.
  3. Copy your either your SU Podium V2.6 license or stand alone Podium Browser licene key into the field. Do not type any spaces before or after. License is case sensitive.
  4. Click Activate license and then close the license manager.
  5. The gear icon should turn yellow after you have successfuly activated your license.
  6. Select Function key F5 or right click on the browser and select Reload.
  7. After license activation, the web version of Poidum Browser 2020 is ready to be used.

    This is a web site that works outside of SketchUp, so after you activate your license, and reload (use the F5 key)the web page, click on a thumbnail and the selected .skp file will be downloaded to the folder you have designated as your download folder in your browser's settings.

    Then go to that download folder and drag the .skp file into SketchUp. It is a two step process to get the content into SketchUp but it is a work around to the mysterious "internet connection" problem that some customers are having with Podium Browser 2020 inside SketchUp.

  SU Podium V2.5 users

The Podium Browser plugin is automatically installed along with SU Podium V2.5, however an SU Podium V2.5 license key cannot be used to activate Podium Browser paid content. The plugin includes ~850 free items you can use in your SketchUp projects without a license. Since Cadalog, Inc. discontinued Podium Browser V2/ V2.5, you will need to purchase the stand alone extension Podium Browser 2020 and install it, if you want full access to the 30,000+ render ready components.
