Today, Trimble announced a big change to how customers will be able to purchase SketchUp products—see the official announcement here.
As of November 4, 2020, SketchUp will no longer sell Classic Perpetual Licenses and Maintenance & Support renewal plans. SketchUp is transitioning to subscription-based products, which offer customers a range of options including a SketchUp Pro subscription — featuring one of the most affordable professional modelers on the market.
SketchUp is shifting to a cloud delivery model for a few reasons. With a subscription, customers can always receive regular updates and improvements to SketchUp products, access from multiple devices at any time and enjoy simplified deployment and management as well as access to technical support.
We are not forgetting our valued Classic License customers and we want to make a special offer for you, limited time only!
Get SketchUp Pro subscription, And still can access your Classic License in perpetuity!
With the Pro subscription, you will get access to:
Product updates and upgrades throughout 1-year subscription period
Unlimited Trimble Connect Cloud Storage
Professional desktop software (usable offline)
Premium Online modeler
Augmented Reality Mobile Viewer
Compatible with XR Headset Viewing like Vive, Oculus, Hololens, WMR
If you would like to purchase another Classic Perpetual License, don’t miss this last chance!
