I've gotten a lot of requests for a book on LayOut, and now it's ready!
LayOut is part of Google SketchUp Pro, and is a presentation tool. You can import a SketchUp model into a blank page or a set template, and interact with it (zoom, pan, orbit, etc). You can set standard views and scales, add text, labels, and dimensions, use objects from scrapbooks, etc.
Here's some general info about Layout.
So far, my new book is available as PDF, but with enough demand I can make it available in print as well.
Click here for info on the book, and click here to see exactly what's in the book (a Google Docs PDF).
Anyone can design anything in 3D! www.3dvinci.net
