What you'll learn

Have you ever created a model in SketchUp that you were really proud of but just didn't how to present your ideas and details quickly and effectively? Well if so, this course is for you! In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to present our concepts using LayOut. We'll begin with simple views and scenes like perspectives and elevations. Once we get comfortable with setting up those scenes, we'll take a look at how to link our 3D SketchUp models to our 2D environment in LayOut. We'll generate the drawings you'd normally need to present when trying to sell or communicate your concept. In addition to elevations and perspectives, we'll create floor plans, sections, and details, all from a single model! By the end of this course, you'll know how to use the tools you need to present and sell your concepts to peers, instructors, and even clients. Software required: SketchUp Pro.
