Tutorial: Export Sketchup to Pdf file

Postby sunary0 » Tue Apr 12, 2022 8:08 am

hello everyone, today I want to share a sketchup tutorial for beginners "how to export sketchup to a pdf file"

Besides being converted into photo files, SketchUp files can also be saved as PDFs. This pdf file is usually more convenient to use when we want to share files than photo files which sometimes experience compression.

PDF files are also sometimes used for printing purposes, where usually a child of architecture who wants to print his assignment first converts the image file into a PDF before being taken to the printing house.

How? please follow the tutorial below

1. First set the scene or view that you want to display in the pdf file.

2. After that click File Menu > Export > 2D Files

3. Select a folder to save this file.

4. Fill in the file name in File Name, then click the box next to Export Type and select PDF file.

5. Finally, click Export

That's how to convert skp file into pdf. Hopefully this tutorial is useful and excited to learn!

Thanks sunary0 for this PDF-Tutorial-start - it gets really exciting when you dive into the darned many PDF printing settings options such as quality, scaling yes/no, paper size corrected or the difference between exporting from "SketchUp" or "Layout" etc etc ...
May we expect further deepenings on this topic from you in the future? which would be great :) ;)

I would recommend, for full control of your output, send your Sketchup file to Layout.

In Layout you can easily organize and refine your scenes, add nice dimensioning, annotations and lots of other features.

When the output is as you really want it to be, one can export to several file types including multi-page PDFs.

I have been using for many years or commercial construction documents. Love it.
