New Book: Construction Documents Using SketchUp Pro and LayOut

For the first time, I'm offering something by another author on my website! Written for SketchUp Pro and LayOut users, this PDF book is a tutorial on creating construction documents, and costs only $18.95.

The author is my friend and colleague Paul Lee who runs Viewsion - Ireland's first authorized SketchUp training center. Paul has been around the SketchUp "scene" for several years, and has developed a nice, streamlined method for taking SketchUp models and getting them ready for presentation in LayOut. His method was featured recently on SketchUp's Official Blog.

Paul's new book is a 72-page tutorial (PDF format) that contains four parts:
  1. Create 2D construction information from your model
  2. Format 2D construction presentation using SketchUp scenes
  3. Importing 2D construction information into LayOut
  4. Structuring the SketchUp model: a recap using a house model
View some sample pages here.

The entire book is estimated to take 4-6 hours to go through, depending on how many coffee breaks you take. All starter models are ready-made and waiting for you to download.

And yes, Paul is Irish, not French. But he bears a striking resemblance to this guy...

Anyone can design anything in 3D!
