How to Sign In to SketchUp Pro Web Features

SketchUp Pro has a number of features that access the internet for full functionality, these features require a Trimble ID login which you'll need to create. Once you've created a Trimble ID, you'll still need to sign in to activate the features. To create your Trimble ID, if you haven't already, be sure to read our article "Creating a Trimble ID" and follow the steps there.

Once you've created your Trimble ID, you'll be able to Sign In following the process below:

  1. Click the Profile icon in the top right corner of the document window and choose "Sign In".

  2. This will open a new tab in your default browser to let you sign in, you'll have two options; Sign in with your email address, or sign in with Google.

  3. Enter your desired email address and click "Next", if you've already created a Trimble ID with this email address then you can skip to step 7, otherwise continue to step 4.

  4. If you're entered an email address that isn't tied to a Trimble ID then you'll be prompted for additional information;

    Password must contain:
    -8 Characters
    -A digit [ 0-9 ]
    -A combination of lower & uppercase letters [ aA-zZ ]
    -A special character [ !@#$%&*^_-+ ]
  5. After entering the required fields you'll be sent an email to activate the account.

  6. Activating the account will then give you the option to Sign In.

  7. Upon entering your password, or after activating your new account you'll see confirmation that you've signed in and may return to using SketchUp, now with the web features accessible.
