SketchUp is one of the most important 2D & 3D architectural and engineering software.

SketchUp is also a program under the Google banner, but this is the "free"/ basic version and SketchUp Pro adds several critical printing features that you'll need for contracts and legal forms. If you have the basic version and are considering spending $599 for the upgrade, this book will take you from beginner through the intermediate stage skill level.

This book, THE SKETCHUP WORKFLOW FOR ARCHITECTURE is an extremely important book to learn all of the useful functions (and, there are many) built into the Pro version. There are chapters that focus on the free version as well as the Pro version with color images and detailed architectural diagrams throughout.

Very clear instructions and logical steps to deliver organised and retrievable models and information on each project. Must have book for all modelers - not just architects.

Excellent detail necessary for a working professional, particularly the sections about LayOut and how to use LayOut to construct contract documents. I was so impressed I bought the ConDoc software as well directly from Michael Brightman. I'd recommend this book to any small professional Architect or Building Surveyor practice who wants to start using SketchUp and LayOut as part of a BIM strategy or even to get a properly organised way of working using this software
