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:
- Create 2D construction information from your model
- Format 2D construction presentation using SketchUp scenes
- Importing 2D construction information into LayOut
- Structuring the SketchUp model: a recap using a house model
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...
