Sketchup Pro Trial Downloads

To access your free SketchUp Pro Trial download, we recommend these basic hardware and software requirements: 

  1. Internet Access – You can use SketchUp for Web on most internet-connected computers via a recommended browser (Chrome 59+ or Firefox 52+).
  2. Multi-Core Processors – SketchUp will run on multiple-processor machines; however, SketchUp will only use one processor.

SketchUp Pro vs SketchUp Free

SketchUp Free is browser based only – it cannot be used for any commercial work at all. If you are using SketchUp commercially, you will need to purchase a subscription of SketchUp Pro.

If you’re not using Pro, you’re missing out on a range of features designed for producing professional-grade work, including LayOut, PreDesign, Trimble Connect, AR Viewer for mobile and numerous file import/export options. Take a look at our in depth guide to see the differences between SketchUp Free and SketchUp Pro.
