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.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre Derenoncourt. Have you ever created a model in SketchUp that you are really proud of, but just didn't know how to present your ideas quickly and effectively? Well, if the answer is yes, then 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 even elevations. And once we get comfortable with setting up those scenes, we'll take a look at how we can link our 3-D SketchUp models to our two-dimensional environment in LayOut. We'll cover the drawings you'd normally need to present your idea when trying to sell or communicate your concept. So that means in addition to elevations and perspectives, we'll create floor plans, sections, and even details all from a single model. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use tools you'll need to present and sell your concepts to peers, instructors, and even clients. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
