SketchUp is useful from the earliest stages of design to the end of construction. Programming, diagramming, design development, detailing, documentation, RFIs—wherever you need drawings, you need SketchUp Pro.
The SketchUp you know and love… and so much more.

What’s New in SketchUp Pro for Desktop?:
Welcome Panel (SketchUp Pro for Desktop + LayOut)
We’ve made some updates to our Files, Learn, and Licensing tabs to make it easier to manage projects and licenses. While we were at it, we added links to learning resources directly into SketchUp and LayOut.
When you launch SketchUp or LayOut, you’ll see a Files panel where you can manage default templates and access new, recent and recovered files. To change to a different template when opening a new file, select the “New From Template” option in the File pulldown menu.
We are introducing a new portal for training content, appropriately named, the SketchUp Campus. This is the hub for both beginner and advanced learning through video courses that will eventually cover the entire SketchUp family and many professional industry work flows.
Default Toolbar Changes
We’ve made some new updates to the toolbars in SketchUp Pro and LayOut. You’ll notice a “My Account” icon in the top upper-right hand side of the screen. Here, you can access your licensing information, sign in and sign out.
Solid lines don’t always tell the full story. Sometimes you need a dash pattern to convey your design idea. Whether you need to demarcate a property boundary, identify what is proposed, or identify walls for demolition, adding a stipple might be your best solution.
Supported Dashes in SketchUp (imperial and metric equivalents
That’s why we’ve incorporated dashed lines into SketchUp Pro 2019. These dashes are properties of Layers and can be controlled from the Layers panel. Even better, components on layers will inherit the dash pattern. In LayOut, your dashes will show in the viewport at any screen scale and in all render modes with the ability to edit the dash width and scale. When you’re ready to export, SketchUp can convert your dashed pattern into a bunch of file formats: PDF, EPS (vector), images (raster), and DWG/DXF.
SketchUp Tape Measure Tool
Upgrades to the Tape Measure tool mean less time you’ll spend opening up Entity Info or looking at the Measurements box. Now, you can get the length of edges, area of faces, and coordinates of midpoints and intersections straight from an inference tip.
Compatibility Mode for Windows 10
It is no longer necessary to run SketchUp in compatibility mode. Compatibility mode was employed for several SketchUp releases as a workaround for problems with older Intel HD 2000 and HD 3000 GPUs on Windows 10. These GPUs have been deprecated by Intel on Windows 10 and because this workaround introduced problems of its own, it has been removed. As a result SketchUp, LayOut, and Style Builder will no longer run with Intel HD 2000 and HD 3000 GPUs on Windows 10.
