SketchUp Pro 2015 Student 1-Year License
The SketchUp Pro
Student 1-year license is functionally exactly the same as the $700 commercial
SketchUp Pro license. No watermark appears on images created with the SketchUp
Pro Student 1-year license. A SketchUp Pro license will authorize the application
in any of the language options available for SketchUp Pro.
Please note that the SketchUp Pro Student license is to be used for
educational purposes by students only; it should not be used for commercial
(for-profit) work of any kind.
If you are not in the United States or Canada, please order from an International
SketchUp Pro Reseller. If your country does not have a SketchUp Pro
Reseller, you may order from Creation Engine.
Free updates to the latest version of SketchUp Pro are emailed out during
the 1-year license term. Please email your name, school, and serial number
if you have not received your free update a week after a new release.
There are no longer separate licenses for PC and Mac. SketchUp Pro licenses are now platform independent.
You can authorize your SketchUp Pro on up to two machines, but you can only operate that license on one machine at a time.
SketchUp Pro 2015 is an older version of SketchUp Pro. SketchUp Pro 2015 is still available for plug-in and operating system compatibility.
SketchUp Pro 2016 is available here if you would like to purchase the latest version of SketchUp Pro.
Who uses SketchUp Pro?
Hundreds of thousands of professionals in (take a deep breath) architecture,
construction, engineering, commercial interiors, light construction, landscape
architecture, kitchen & bath design, urban planning, game design, film &
stage, woodworking, and plenty of other fields use SketchUp Pro all the time,
every day. It’s the all-purpose antidote to complicated, expensive CAD
A smarter way to think about 3D modeling
SketchUp Pro is like a pencil with superpowers. Start by drawing lines and
shapes. Push and pull surfaces to turn them into 3D forms. Stretch, copy, rotate
and paint to make anything you like. More advanced? Start modeling from CAD
and terrain data, photographs or even hand sketches. Build models with custom
behaviors and attributes. SketchUp Pro is as simple and as powerful as you want
it to be. Learn
Turn your models into drawings with LayOut
At some point in every project, you need to produce a set of drawings that
shows your model: plans, sections, elevations, perspectives. LayOut in SketchUp
Pro lets you add model views to pages, choose drawing scales, adjust line weights
and add dimensions, callouts and graphics. Changes to your model are reflected
automatically in LayOut. When it’s time, export PDFs, images and CAD files.
Get good, fast.
There’s a reason SketchUp is synonymous with friendly and forgiving 3D
modeling software: we don’t sacrifice usability for the sake of functionality.
With handy contextual tips, a dedicated Instructor panel for beginners, and
mountains of online resources, help is always on the way. And just in case,
every SketchUp Pro license includes a year of free technical support. Learn
No software is an island
We built SketchUp Pro to slide right into your existing workflow. Ready for
some alphabet soup? With importers for DXF, DWG, 3DS, DAE, KMZ, TIF, JPG, PNG
and a few more, you can bring in drawings, models and images to your heart’s
content. SketchUp Pro also exports all of those formats, plus PDF, OBJ, FBX,
XSI, VRML, MP4, WEBM and AVI. OMG. Learn
Slides are boring. Present from SketchUp Pro.
Scenes let you save views of your model to pull up anytime. Styles provide
endless visual effects to make your work look precise, sketchy or anything in
between. Section Planes slice through models for creating sectional views. Go
fullscreen, walk around, add labels and export flyover animations. Present from
SketchUp Pro and get your point across every single time. Learn
Models and plugins aplenty
Need a particular chair for the room you’re designing? A lamp for your
carriage house? A rhino for your zoo? You’ll find almost anything you
need in SketchUp’s 3D Warehouse, the world’s biggest repository
of free 3D models. And as for plugins that provide extra features and tools,
our all-new Extension Warehouse is your ticket to add-on nirvana. Learn
Don’t just design. Analyze.
SketchUp Pro can accurately predict where shadows will fall, given any time,
date and location on earth. It can show you exactly what you’ll see from
anywhere in your model. It will precisely calculate the area of any surface
or material, or the volume of any enclosed 3D shape. It lets you add attributes
to objects, and can spit out lists and reports with deliciously useful data.
A world of context—literally
In about two minutes, you can choose a section of the world to bring into your
SketchUp Pro model—up to a square kilometer at a time. For free, you’ll
get aerial imagery, a 3D terrain model and lat-long data to produce accurate
shadow studies. From there, you can import pre-modeled buildings for site context
and use Google Maps Street View imagery to model anything else you need. Learn
A place for everything and everything in its place
Your mother always told you that the key to 3D modeling success was tidiness
and organization. Make your models easy to work on and easy to present. Use
groups and components to divvy up your geometry into logical chunks. Layers
come in handy for separating big pieces of your model, and the Outliner is a
way to see everything at once. Learn
What's New in 2015?
For the first time ever, SketchUp is offering a 64-bit version for Windows machines. What's the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit applications?
Face Finder improvements
SketchUp sharpened "Face-Finder", the code SketchUp uses to create faces while you're modeling. Look for big improvements in operations like explode, especially in your behemoth-sized models.
SketchUp is now self-aware of styles that help your model render faster. Youíll notice "Fast Styles" badged in the styles window, including those you create yourself. What makes a style fast, you ask?
