Frequently Asked Questions

When will Live Components be configurable in SketchUp?

Live Components can be configured inside SketchUp Pro 2021 and SketchUp Web.

Can we create our own Live Components?

Not yet. Right now we are working on improving the performance and stability of Live Components, as well as sharpening their usability in SketchUp. If you are interested to learn how to make Live Components and beta test the Materia authoring platform, sign-up here and we’ll be in touch when this phase of the Labs project begins.

Do Live Components require an internet connection?

An internet connection is required to change the configuration of a Live Component. However once you have a live component in your model or on your computer (local components directory) you can make copies and work with it much like you would with normal components.

Why can I only download 2020 files?

At this time it’s only possible to download a Live Component in the 2020 file format. We’ll explore supporting older versions in the future.
