I need help in understanding if one can use SketchUp’s Educational License for commercial use, with permission? For instance, when I create the 3d models on my own, is that intellectual property still mine, or does it go towards SketchUp? Also, (if this helps any), I am currently an Architectural Technology student.
You should get actual legal counsel on this as no one here is qualified to give a legal interpretation of the EULA and Trimble employees are not permitted to do so by corporate policy. That said, the way I read the EULA, the education license does not permit commercial use.
Student licenses don’t allow you to use it for commercial purposes.
Everything you design with it belongs to you, but you can’t make a profit selling those models or use layout to create documents and build something that would generate you a profit.
If you want to generate money with sketchup you must get a license.
