Watch this before you get started with LayOut

Postby a2theo » Tue Mar 26, 2019 4:31 pm

LayOut is a great tool for creating design presentations and construction documents from your SketchUp models. But for new users, it can be frustrating to learn. That’s because there are 7 common mistakes that can trip you up when you’re getting started with LayOut, and all of them have to do with things you need to get right in SketchUp before you dive into LayOut.

If you’re new to LayOut or have struggled trying to learn it, we just published a new video on our YouTube channel for you called Watch This Before You Get Started with LayOut for SketchUp Pro. The goal of the video is to help you avoid the frustration most new LayOut users experience and get you headed down the right path and on your way to creating design presentations and construction documents with LayOut for SketchUp Pro.

Inside the video, we cover:

  • Why your Floor Plans, Elevations and Sections need to be turned into Scenes in SketchUp before you get to LayOut
  • Ideas for setting up and managing Section Cuts
  • Strategies for using Layers in SketchUp to help you in LayOut later
  • How to combine SketchUp Styles, LayOut Line Scale and Stacked Viewports to manage your drawing’s line weights
  • Why it’s a better idea to draw some of your 2D symbols in SketchUp rather than LayOut

You can watch the new video here: https://youtu.be/ilMHyhu1V14

When you get a chance, watch the video and then be sure to let me know if you have any questions or feedback. Thanks!
