As of November 4, 2020, SketchUp no longer offers new Classic Licenses or renewals of Classic Licenses. This includes the Classic Maintenance & Support plans. We've updated our policy regarding supported versions of SketchUp to help with any questions you may have. For more information, please see our End of Support article. SketchUp Classic Licenses, also known as Perpetual Licenses, allowed users to purchase a version of SketchUp and use that specific version forever.
First - Are you in the right place? We started offering sign-in plans in 2018 for Go and in 2019 for Pro. The subscription plans found in the Trimble Account page do not have or need serial numbers. SketchUp Pro Classic license plans and authorization codes are not shown in the Trimble Account management portal, but rather are found in the License Manager.
SketchUp now offers SketchUp Subscriptions based on the needs and budgets of our customers. You can read about each option below. If you pay for a SketchUp Pro subscription, your subscription is active for the term listed on your invoice. In most cases subscriptions are for one year.
SketchUp has grown and with that we've added new applications, new methods for licensing and Trimble ID to help keep them all connected. If you're new to SketchUp and just want to get your software authorized and ready to use then you can sign up for one of the SketchUp Subscriptions. Please be aware, you'll need to have a Trimble ID to access all of the features or activate your license. We hope you'll take a moment to look at what our new Subscriptions have to offer and see which option works best for you.
With SketchUp Subscriptions, your authorization is tied to your Trimble ID. To authorize SketchUp you’ll install the latest version then on first run you’ll be prompted to sign in. Once you’ve signed in, SketchUp will sync with our subscription servers and activate the software.
