BREAKING! Upcoming changes in SketchUp licensing options

BREAKING! Upcoming changes in SketchUp licensing options

On June 2nd, 2020, SketchUp developer Trimble announced a big change to how customers will be able to purchase SketchUp products. As of November 4, 2020, we will no longer sell SketchUp Pro Classic Perpetual Licenses and Maintenance & Support renewal plans on existing Classic licenses.

SketchUp is transitioning to subscription-based products for a few reasons. With a subscription, you will always receive regular updates and improvements to SketchUp products, access from multiple devices at any time and enjoy simplified deployment and management as well as access to technical support. Plus, with a subscription you will get the same SketchUp Pro as you are used to, but with:

  • Trimble Connect Business for unlimited cloud storage and collaboration;
  • Viewers for the Hololens, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality;
  • Access to the Premium Browser version of SketchUp anywhere.

Your Possibilities

If you own a SketchUp Classic License (single-user or networked), don’t worry. It will continue to function. If you want to convert your license(s) into a Subscription, please contact us for the possibilities.

Alternatively, if you’d like to update your Classic Perpetual License or renew Maintenance, you can do that until November 4, 2020! *

* Please be advised: After November 4, 2020, you will no longer be able to upgrade your Classic license and access additional features every year as you have in the past. But, you will be able to use the latest version you own as long as you want.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We’ll be happy to help you understand these changes along with any other product questions you may have.
