Hi all, I 'm a graphic designer but also realize 3D models with SketchUp, I have a doubt in if allowed to use the name of the program to promote it as part of my portfolio , thank you very much for your help , greetings!

It’s always risky to ask a legal opinion of fellow users–mere legal laypersons–especially while crossing a language barrier. So given that disclaimer, you’re welcome to my opinion.

If you want to make a claim such as “Design developed with SketchUp,” or “Modeled in SketchUp” that sounds perfectly fine, and I can’t see how that would infringe on Trimble’s copyright. If you also wish to make the assertion that you are an expert with SketchUp, that also sounds fine.
