I've only ever done 3D work for educational purposes. Now I need to do some for work and not sure what exactly constitutes commercial in this realm.
We manufacture two pieces of architectural equipment. If we model the equipment to put in the Google SketchUp Warehouse so architects/contractors have free access to them is that considered commercial use?
This is the TOS from SketchUp Make (the new name for the free version):
Trimble Navigation Limited and/or its affiliates ("Trimble") gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the executable version of the Software for non-commercial use only. Non-commercial use means: you may not sell, rent, lease or lend the output of the Software or the Services. If you are a for-profit organization of any kind, or an employee of a for-profit organization using the Software or Services in that capacity, you are engaged in commercial activity; therefore, in order to use the Software and Services, you must purchase a SketchUp Pro license.
I'm certainly not selling, renting or leasing any output. I have no idea what "lend the output" means. Is giving away an object for free considered "lending?"
