Sketchup plans

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a way to generate a construction plan or working drawings from a sketchup model?

I'm using the free version but could probably get the pro trial.


Thanks

Hi I have used sketchUp alone to generate working drawings via Layout which is a Pro feature, but if you need them in only DWG or DWF then you will still need Pro to export in this format

Great, I have the free trial.
Can you point me to a tutorial?
I have been searching, but it's difficult to find what you want when you dont know the correct terminology..

The best SU tutor I've come across is Paul Smith, he has at least 3 courses on Lynda.com (I have no affiliation)You will get a 1 month free trial

Hi James,

I wrote the original book on the subject which is listed on SketchUp.com and Amazon.

I'm writing an updated version which will be ready September 2018.

Here's a link to my site.
