Authorize SketchUp Pro

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. If you don’t have an active subscription you’ll have an option for the free trial if you haven’t already taken it, otherwise you’ll need to purchase a subscription or a classic license to continue.

In the following video, you can see how to authenticate your license for the selected version of SketchUp Pro.
