I posted this in the normal AutoCAD group but I want to post here too. I installed the Building Design Suite ultimate edition which comes with Sketchbook Designer. There is supposed to be a Sketchbook Designer for AutoCAD that installs when you install sketchbook. No plugins seem to have installed for AutoCAD or ACA. My first question has anyone else had this happen? My second is will it installed with ACA or is this also another case of Autodesk only making the plugin for vanilla AutoCAD?
I also have the same problem. I lodged a support request with autodesk and this was their reply:
"the Plugin installs in AutoCAD 2012 when you install SketchBook Designer 2012.
Is not an external plugin. Did you install SketchBook Designer 2012 in the machgine having AutoCAd 2012?
Did you have in AutoCAD the menu entry SketchBook Designer?
Please let me know if you have a poroblem with the plugin and which problem is and I
will try to help you to have the plugin installed."
Where do I find "Menu entry" to see if sketchbook designer is installed?
I'm still pretty sure its not installed?..
I dont think AutoDesk knows. I have the same problem and have tried all the same things that everyone else has with the same results as everyone else. All the replies from AutoDesk seem to point to a guy on YouTube that, by some miracle, has the plugin on his machine and he is able to do all these great things without any trouble. So I'll keep looking and If I see the solution I'll post it here.
OK, here is what you do:
Do not un-install anything, but make sure you have Sketchbook on there.
Go through the steps as if you are installing the product for the first time. You will have to enter serial and product key.
You should then be at the menu that list the programs that are installed on your machine.
Hover over the AutoCAD 2012 and you will see "Click to Open & Configure".
Click it and you will be directed to the menu where you can check the sketchbook designer plugin.
Check the box and then Click to return to the install.
Click install and it will install the plugin.
It takes about 5-10 minutes depending on processor speed.
