I’ve been trying to figure out how SketchUp behaves after my license expires. I haven’t purchased my license, yet, because of this question. My experience with licensed design software comes from Adobe, prior to their subscription-based packages. If I purchase a license, install the software, and activate said license, does my software become locked/unusable after the license expires?
No. If you buy and activate a license for SketchUp 2018 Pro, you can continue to use SketchUp 2018 Pro after the license expires. SketchUp 2018 won’t suddenly stop working. If you choose not to pay the annual fee, you lose access to SketchUp Technical Support and upgrade to the next version. If you decide to continue with the annual fee, you would have continued Tech Support access and be able to upgrade to the next version when it is released.
Ok, thank you! That’s what I was trying to figure out.
