General discussion related to LayOut

Thank you Sonder
I am working on a project that is a bit rough around the edges. I think that I used the wrong style.
I will pay more attention to your recommendations on the next project.

Another small project for a workshop.









On deck are 2 small buildings - I'm taking the entire process through SU and LO, as well as another small timber frame workshop project (similar in scope to these drawings).

Here's hoping Trimble sees the value in LayOut and ups the development of it. It is my go to tool now for taking 3d to 2d.

Pirun! that's wonderful :berserk: crisp pictures and fresh format.

I don't know if I commented on your last project bmike. All your stuff is really great. What can I say? It gives me hope for LO (and the human race....for that matter)! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

Pirun (or anyone). It would be great if you could comment:

What was difficult in presenting this project in LO? Did you learn anything new? Any good tips on dimensions or any other tools? Is this output in vector? to png?

THANKS for posting. Peter

This is really great stuff :ecstatic: :ecstatic: :ecstatic: I've been getting to know LO in the past week or so reading Bonnie Roskes's ebook and looking for examples of layout in LO so I'm awe struck by these examples.

Thanks to all the contributors.

Pirun - lovely, stylish, clear drawings. Nice. I've made plenty of good, solid, descriptive drawings but - like Sonder - you've made something positively artistic as well.

I'm going to toot my own horn a little here because I've just released a plugin intended to help with getting things set up to make doing the LO pages for components easier. See viewtopic.php?f=323&t=45790

Pirun,
Fantastic use of LayOut. I would like to hear about your workflow from Su to LO.
Thanks for sharing...

Very nice work indeed,but and this may be a stupid question but how to you combine two sketch-up models into one layout file?

Just insert another from the file menu. I've had 3-4 in a single LO drawing.

I'll do another vid next week on getting started.

That's excellent Mike! Thank you. :thumb:

The idea of the whiteout mask: feels like a candidate for a plugin, or perhaps sections should have a built-in, definable "limit". I use fog often in detail shots to filter out complicated backgrounds and give depth & emphasis. Good ideas.

Yes, I wish that section could show to infinity or to limit back to some distance. I haven't had luck with fog.

I should note I only use that whiteout technique when I do shop drawings, as i need to isolate each bent or section for the shop crew. Very rarely when I do a typical building section, as I want to show what is goIng on throughout.

A nice feature of the whiteout block is that they are all the same size for each direction of the building - so when I set up my scenes I can zoom extents each one and when I place them in LayOut when I go from one to the next they stay in the same place. Very cool bonus that tends to keep my grid lines and floor lines and height callouts in the same location from page to page.

I'll have to contact TIG. Man that would be sweet to have built in. It could take the raw width and height of the sectioned area , add a user defined margin, and then offset back a chosen distance. Create a white plane, hide edges, place on same layer (or layername-WO) and get it all done.

TIG wrote me a quick standalone plugin to do this...! :berserk:
Not sure if he's posted it yet to the forums.

My drawings snuck into a news spot on a recent timber frame workshop here in VT. Here's the screen cap: (and a link)

No mention of me or my work, but good press for the TFG and their continuing hands on approach to education and the building arts.

Ha....!
Thanks. I need to start embedding my logo with the clients logo on this stuff.
Then I can send takedown notices... (kidding...)

I should have asked the big G for royalties. I was on their LayOut page for quite a while.

Hey Nicholas (sonder). Just saw you on video. Cool! Great inspiration and hopefully a way to show other people the possibilites of sketchup+layout!

Thanks!. One of the crew from Trimble (Google at the time) came out to interview me and made the video.

Wow, that IS fantastic, for you and SketchUp. Well done too. I like the sheets flopping one after another onto the screen. What's the renderer for those interior shots that show while Marshall is speaking? Good job! Peter

Definitely a video that people should be shown saying that Sketchup is only a toy. :thumb:

An update on the Round Barn project. I've modeled relevant joinery and connections as required by the engineering team that hired me to create these drawings:
