The Value of SketchBook Designer 2014 vs Sketchbook Pro 2015

Did you know support of Sketchbook Designer is coming to an end? Check this out:

SketchBook Designer - Concept Design & Illustration Software - Autodesk

I guess the story is a bit like Impression 3, and to a lesser extent Design Review 2013 - Sketchbook Designer 2014 is the last official version.

The main difference seems to be that Sketchbook Designer is / was a desktop design tool, while Sketchbook Pro is a sketching tool for tablets and stylus use. Personally, I will be be keeping Sketchbook Designer 2014 installed for a few years I think...

Sketchbook Designer 2014


Sketchbook Pro 2015 (aka 6.2 ?)


This option in Sketchbook Pro 6.2 will launch Designer 2014


Sketchbook Pro 2014 is equal to 6.1


Sketchbook Designer (not Pro) can export vector formats such as DWG - you can also have Vector or Raster layer types:

  1. Why do you compare it to Design Review? As far as I know it isn't going to the graveyard!?

    1. Because Design Review hasn't been updated since 2013 - Autodesk is focusing on more "cloud" methods than further development of Design Review.

  2. Is there a big difference between Sketchbook Designer version 2013 and 2014? I have 2013 version and want to know if I need to update.

  3. Do you think is possible to get Sketchbook DESIGNER for mac or windows now? Whatever version.. it doesn´t matter.. I need it and i can't find it anymore, I'm going crazy looking for it.

    1. If you have the Suite media for 2014, you could install it from that? You can also download Sketchbook Design 2012 and 2013 using the Autodesk Virtual Agent What Revit Wants: Use Virtual Agent to download Individual Autodesk Installers that work with Suite Licenses. Strangely enough, I couldn't find the 2014 version on there...
