SketchUp Layout


LayOut is the tool for creating documentation from your SketchUp model. You start in SketchUp, draw your project and create scenes to show the different views. then you can send the file to LayOut, add dimensions, labels, title blocks, other text, perhaps photos or whatever. then export a PDF file for presentation

There’s a dynamic link maintained from the SketchUp model to the LayOut document so if you edit the SketchUp model, those changes can be shown in the LayOut doc.
