Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Loading the SketchUp model into LayOut, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So we're in Chapter 7.0.4.…There's no accompanying exercise file for this one.…We're going to create our own A3 blank sheet from LayOut.…So I'm in LayOut, and unless you've configured it…any differently from watching the other series,…then you'll get this getting started window up here.…Now this has some graph paper and plain paper set up in it,…and you can also just jump to the individual sections…of graph paper there or plain paper,…and they just limit what you can see.…
There's also a storyboard section.…And then, you've got the title block section as well.…So all of these different options for you to load up…if you wanted to.…Now I'm just going to use a plain paper, A3,…and I'll click Open.…This gives us just a blank sheet to play with, nothing else.…It's called untitled page one so we'll save this file.…Save as.…I'll call it Chapter 7.0.4 SketchUp details…and then save.…
Then we get the file name up there.…So what we've currently got is just an A3 blank sheet.…Now one thing to point out and it's absolutely crucial…
