Design Documentation & Presentation

In LayOut

Get Instant Access

Create efficient and professional documentation.

Design documentation and presentation is an important step in your SketchUp workflow. This can be done efficiently in LayOut (available with SketchUp Pro).


LayOut is a fantastic compliment to SketchUp. It acts as the "paper version" of your 3D model. It is used for documentation of drawings at all phases of the project.

In this course we will work through an exercise file together. Tammy will show you how to prep your SketchUp model, transfer it to LayOut, and set up each page to present to clients.

    Make changes easily and submit your presentation quickly! ⚡️

    SketchUp is often advertised as an "easy to use", "jump right in", type of software... and it is! But learning how to use it properly and efficiently takes time and research. Many courses and books have an abundance of content on every aspect of SketchUp. But for interior designers, we don't need every bit of information... we just need to move through a client project from measurements, presentation, ordering, then install. This course has taken the guesswork out of how to develop an interior designer's workflow for efficient documentation in LayOut so that you can make changes easily and submit your presentation quickly.
