Is there any way to use VR Sketch without SketchUp Pro?

I’m using SketchUp for Web (free) for personal use and I’d like to view my models on my Quest 2. I found VR Sketch which seems amazing and it has been working perfectly with a SketchUp Pro trial, which has now expired.

As this is only for personal use, I cannot afford a $299/yr SketchUp Pro subscription just to allow the VR Sketch extension to upload my model. I also don’t need to edit in VR (although, that is very cool with VR Sketch).

Is there any other way to use the free/hobbyist VR Sketch to view a SketchUp for Web model? I can download/export SKP, STL, 3DS, Collada, DWG, DXF, FBX, KMZ, OBJ, VRML or XSI file from SketchUp for Web.

We have plans for some ways to upload and/or open locally files in some of the formats that you give, but they are part of a larger work-in-progress. It could be a few months before it is ready.

Otherwise, the current and best supported solution is to use Sketchup Make 2017 on Windows (we don’t have a solution for Mac at this point, sorry). This version is free and appears to be still provided by third-party professional web sites like CNET: download SketchUp 2017 Make.

If you want to double-check what you downloaded, use these checksums:
