SketchUp Pro System Requirements | Like many computer programs, SketchUp requires certain hardware and software specifications in order to install and run. These are basic requirements, though, so you may want to use our recommended suggestions to improve performance.

Windows 11, Windows 10

  • Software
    • An internet connection is required to install and authorize SketchUp and to use some of the features.
    • SketchUp Pro requires .NET Framework version 4.5.2. For more information about the .NET framework, click here.
  • Recommended hardware
    • 2+ GHz processor
    • Discrete Graphics card such as a current generation AMD or NVIDIA.
    • 8+ GB RAM
    • 2GB of available hard-disk space
    • 3D class video card with 1 GB of memory or higher and support for hardware acceleration. Please ensure that the video card driver supports OpenGL 3.1 or higher and is up to date. Note: SketchUp’s performance relies heavily on the graphics card driver and its ability to support OpenGL 3.1 or higher. To test your graphics card’s compatibility, please download and run the SketchUp Checkup application.
    • 3-button, scroll-wheel mouse.
  • Minimum hardware
    • 1 GHz processor
    • 4GB RAM
    • 1GB of free hard-disk space
    • 3D class video card with 512 MB of memory or higher and support for hardware acceleration. Please ensure that the video card driver supports OpenGL 3.1 or higher and is up to date.

Unsupported Environments

ARM Processors – While SketchUp 2022 will run on the new Apple M1 Computers running MacOS (Big Sur), SketchUp for Windows is not tested on, nor developed for ARM based processors and is unsupported.

32-Bit Operating Systems – SketchUp is now optimized solely for 64-Bit and no longer available for Windows or MacOS in any 32-bit capacity.

MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra) – With SketchUp 2021 we no longer support MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra).

Windows 7, Windows 8 – We no longer actively test features or bugs on these older versions of Windows. While the software may still run properly, there may be some issues with features that haven’t been tested.

Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra) – SketchUp 2018 has a known issue that leads to a one-time crash of SketchUp 2018 on MacOS Sierra in the first 10-15 minutes (or so).

Windows Vista and older – These versions of Windows are no longer supported.

Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra) and older – These versions of OS X are no longer supported.

Linux – A Linux version of SketchUp isn’t available at this time. However, you may be interested to see how others have had success running SketchUp on Linux using Wine.

Parallels/VMWare – Neither VMWare nor Parallels are supported environments.

Remote Desktop Connections – Due to hardware restrictions in shared environments we can’t reliably predict how SketchUp will perform. At this time SketchUp is not supported via a Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) on any platform.
