Construction Documents using SketchUp Pro & LayOut by Paul Lee shows professionals & enthusiasts how to tie all the parts of SketchUp Pro together to produce drawings that were traditionally the domain of CAD. For the first time, by using Paul Lee's methodology it is possible to produce fully-fledged construction files from 3D model-centred information. Create wire-frames of your model that describe the -CAD- detail. Learn how to make this information appear in plan, section and elevation scenes. Then use this information in LayOut to create top quality construction files. NOTE: The exercises in this book are concentrated into the creation of a simple set of drawings of a table in plan, section and elevation. This is a microcosm of the means by which larger drawings can then be produced. The companion SketchUp and LayOut samples for download illustrate this point.
