If you’re not using Pro, you’re missing out on a range of features designed for producing professional-grade work.
SketchUp Make is a free version of SketchUp, for non-commercial use ONLY. If you are using SketchUp commercially, you will need to purchase a licence of SketchUp Pro.
SketchUp Make hasn’t been updated for the 2018 and won’t be updated in the future. Users of SketchUp Make, can continue working in the current build. A shift to web browser – SketchUp Free – means more people can access, learn, and master 3D drawing.SketchUp Free can be launched in a web browser.
Evolved from a year of beta testing, SketchUp Free has improved in speed, stability, and functionality. By design, this app delivers the core of SketchUp’s 3D modeling.
This is a free version of SketchUp, available for non-commercial use, that –
– is easier to learn and simpler to use than ever. You don’t need hundreds of buttons and dropdowns for 3D drawing
– is more accessible to everybody, everywhere. Even Chromebooks and Linux users can run SketchUp Free on any WebGL enabled browser
– is versionless. That means you are always using the newest version.
– is powered by Trimble Connect, so your projects are stored on the web by default, always backed up (no more autosave!). When you use Trimble Connect to host SketchUp files, your work stays up-to-date on our desktop, web, mobile, and XR software
SketchUp Free’s Terms of Service do not allow for commercial use and there are a number of features unavailable compared to SketchUp Pro
