            Activating Your SketchUp Pro Subscription

            1. Creating Your Account
            Once your SketchUp Pro Subscription order has been processed, you will receive an email containing details of your licence, as well as a link to the account management portal.

            Click the account management portal link, and you will be prompted to sign in with either a Trimble Connect account, or with a Google ID. This needs to be the same email address that you used when you placed your order with us.

            If you don’t already have a Trimble Connect account, enter your email address and click 'Next'. If an account matching that email address does not yet exist, you will be able to create one.

            2. Viewing Your Account
            Once signed in, you will see the subscription bundle that you ordered, and a list of the products available to you.

            3. Download SketchUp Pro
            Click "Download" next to SketchUp Pro to begin the download. Once downloaded, run the file to install SketchUp Pro to your computer. Once installed, look for the SketchUp application in your programs list, or look for these icons on your desktop:

            4. Run SketchUp Pro
            When you run SketchUp Pro, you'll see the "Welcome to SketchUp" screen where you need to click "Sign In" and enter your Trimble ID credentials.

            5. Using SketchUp Pro
            Next, you'll see the "Files" page where you can select a new template, or open an existing model. SketchUp will now launch and you'll be ready to get started!

            6. Managing Your Subscription
            Once you're inside SketchUp Pro, you can check the status of your subscription by going to Help > Manage License.

            If you wish to download the other apps available to you, simply head to and log-in with your Trimble ID.
