You know how to use SketchUp to create 3D models of your projects, but you need to create a 2D presentation of your model in order to communicate your design to other people. With SketchUp Pro, you have the ultimate tool for creating just that; LayOut.

LayOut is the companion program that comes with SketchUp Pro. It takes your 3D model and creates 2D snapshots of your model and places them onto "pages" so you can add dimensions, annotations, and other information in order to create a complete set of construction documents.

This course gives you a complete introduction to LayOut, teaching you all the basics you need to know in order to create a presentation of your model. In addition, you'll learn how to prepare your SketchUp model for LayOut. Have complete control over the look of you LayOut viewports by properly organizing your SketchUp model and creating scenes.

After learning how to create a LayOut document, you'll also learn advanced techniques in SketchUp for creating section cuts, hatch patterns, and poche effects.

This video course includes the SketchUp to LayOut PDF ebook which has all of the lessons from this video course, and other valuable tutorials which you can follow. You'll also get the CAD hatch material library and style library so you can apply traditional hatch patterns to your model.

By the end of this course, you'll have a complete understanding of how to create a SketchUp model specifically for LayOut, as well as how to create a full set of construction documents inside LayOut.

How long do I have access to the course materials?
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Can I take my courses with me wherever I go?
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
