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.

The free licenses are available in the following formats:

  • Licenses for individual Texas school lab networks (Windows and Mac). These licenses allow up to 300 simultaneous users on any given network.
  • Licenses for imaging and installation on multiple laptops that need functionality both on and off of the school network (i.e. students with a laptop assigned to them).
  • Licenses for stand-alone computers (Windows and Mac) for Texas educational non-networked machines. Please note that this is not a networked lab license, and will not run on a network.


The license is good for one year and may be renewed each year after that. The license may not be shared with other individuals. To receive a free license, complete this form. You will then be emailed information on how to download and install the software.
