TCEA has been granted the exclusive rights in the state of Texas to provide free licenses of SketchUp Pro to all K-12 public school educators and students for school-owned computers. The 3D modeling software, normally $495 per license, is easy and intuitive, allowing anyone to model in 3D quickly and accurately. Using 3D models, designers can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to reach a common goal. SketchUp Pro includes LayOut, a 2D documentation and presentation tool for professionals. LayOut combines 3D models with text and 2D drawing elements to create design documents, construction drawings, and compelling digital presentations.

Private Schools: Trimble offers highly discounted SketchUp Pro EDU licenses to schools, for as little as $15 per seat, per year. Please see their licensing information page, with links to their network of resellers who can fulfill your request. Schools are also permitted to download and use SketchUp Make.

SketchUp Pro 2015 licensing information is now available and is platform agnostic. You will receive just one set of codes that can be used for both Windows and Mac systems on individual teacher computers, school lab computers, and school laptops.
