Taking a project from concept to presentation using SketchUp and LayOut. After some stumbles, some test plots and some thought about work flow – I have to say I’m happy with the results. These float somewhere between traditional CAD drawings and hand work – and I love being able to add some color and 3D elements to otherwise lifeless building section details. I published these to a PDF set of drawings and tuned the textures, line weights, and fonts to work as color or black and white prints. Full size is 24×36 – and these are JPGs from PDFs.
