Get Sketchup Studio Subscription

What is the SketchUp Studio Subscription?

The SketchUp Studio Licence is for design teams that want to advance their workflows. Draw in 3D using our 3D modelling software, import and model on point cloud data from a variety of file formats and generate high quality photoreal renders, and share your designs. Windows only.

V-Ray 5 for SketchUp and Scan Essentials are now included in your SketchUp Studio subscription. Start your project off by importing and modelling on robust point cloud data and finish it using incredible, high-quality studio renders. 

A SketchUp Studio subscription is assigned to one individual and can only be used by that registered user. It cannot be shared between colleagues. The individual can authorise their subscription on two computers that they use – but can only use one at a time (typically a work computer/desktop and a laptop).

To access your subscription, you must sign in with Trimble ID. Each user account can only be associated with one individual person. You cannot create a generalised user account that is shared by more than one person. This is what we refer to as a “named user”.

Subscription vs Classic Perpetual

As of November 4, 2020, SketchUp Pro is no longer available in a perpetual license form with its annual maintenance and support fees.  A subscription is now the way to access SketchUp Pro, which offers a whole suite of products at a lower price point and with constant updates and improvements to user requests.
