Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut (2015).
- So what should you know before tackling this course? The most important bit of information that you need to be aware of is that Layout for SketchUp is only available through the pro version of SketchUp, so if you don't have SketchUp Pro then you won't get access to Layout. Now the 2015 version of SketchUp Pro does give you a 30-day trial, so that would be certainly enough time to get familiar with the contents of this course. Otherwise, you'll have to go out and buy the software. What else do you need to know? Well, if you are looking at SketchUp for the first time, then you're probably gonna be a bit bewildered about what's going on on this screen, so I would suggest that if you are new to SketchUp you will benefit from watching some of the other excellent tutorials on SketchUp at Lynda.com.
Also have a look at the SketchUp for Architechs, series one, which explains my methods for creating models in SketchUp. And then that should give you enough of a head start to tackle this one. That said, if you do want to just sort of dive into this one, and sort of just play around with SketchUp with scene, styles and sections, then you can also do that. The principles are the important thing here, it's not necessarily the model, but as this is a series for practicing architechs and students of architecture and designers, generally, I am trying to give them the insight into generating good looking 2D drawings from their 3D models.
So that's the ultimate intention of this series. But also, if you are just curious as to how it all works, then feel free to follow along with some of these tutorials. If you are a premium subscriber, then you will get access to all the information that I'm showing, we will be generating some from scratch, but all of the stuff that we got, and you can see with the plans, the models, the sections the elevations, the backdrops, etc. will all be made available to you through the premium subscription. And I'll explain how you can use all of that content in the next video.
