Learnt the basics of 3D modelling with SketchUp and want to learn 2D model presentation and construction documentation with LayOut?

LayOut is designed to take your 3D model from Sketchup Pro and convert it into orthographic views, presentation views, working drawings etc. After you insert a SketchUp model into a LayOut document, you can design the document to highlight your 3D model’s best features. When you change or update your original SketchUp model, all the details are synced to LayOut automatically.
