Getting Scan Essentials


Scan Essentials does not come with the standard installation of the SketchUp desktop application and is only available with a Studio Subscription. You can download Scan Essentials from either the Account Management Portal, the common Windows installer, or from the SketchUp Extension Warehouse.


Scan Essentials is an extension. Please see Adding Extensions for more information on installing extensions. After you install Scan Essentials, close and restart the SketchUp to complete the installation. When you launch the Scan Essentials for the first time you may see a few more installation dialogs that will finish everything up.

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1, 10, 11 - 64-bit. (*Windows running on Mac Bootcamp is supported)
  • Processor: minimum 2.8 GHz (Quad-Core) or higher

  • VGA card: OpenGL 3.3 compatible with minimum 1 GB VRAM. OpenGL 4.4 with 3 GB of VRAM recommended for best performance. 3-button mouse
