This is the companion page for Chapter 8 of the book Architectural Design with SketchUp.

From the Book

This chapter of Architectural Design with SketchUp covers LayOut, SketchUp Pro’s drawing preparation software. You will learn how to arrange various types of views of a SketchUp model on standard-sized sheets and then add annotations like text, dimensions, tables, and a sheet border.

Because LayOut only ships with the desktop versions of SketchUp Pro (Windows and Mac), this chapter is applicable only if your SketchUp subscription gives you access to those.

Note: This chapter is new to the third edition.
