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.
A single-user license or sign-in subscription is associated with one person. That individual can install the license on up to 2 computers he or she is using, but only one computer can run SketchUp Pro at a particular time. To use your license or subscription on another computer, or transfer a classic license to a new computer, please note the following steps: If you have a classic license and you'll no longer be using it on that computer, remove your license from your current computer by following the steps in the How to Remove a License article.

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.
