SketchUp & LayOut Master Class: Part 1A - 4B.
SketchUp and LayOut Master Class: PARTS 1A - 4B. How to produce construction drawings using Sketchup and Layout.
My name is Luke Whitelock and I am an award winning feature film art director, I will show you the method I use to design sets in SketchUp and turn them into legible and professional construction drawings. Although the project is based on set design, all of the methods I teach can be transferred to any design vocation. So whether you work in interior design, architecture, theatre or film and TV like I do you can use these courses to truly become a master of SketchUP and LayOut.
PART 1A - 4B.
A 10 hour comprehensive tutorial demonstrating how I produce set designs for the major motion picture industry. I have used the method demonstrated in this tutorial to produce working construction drawings for many clients including Marvel Studios, Disney Studios, 20th Century Fox, Eon, Warner Brothers and Netflix. Projects I have been involved with include: "Avengers: End Game", "Avengers: Infinity War", "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil", "The Batman", "James Bond: No Time To Die", "Cruella" and "Guardians of the Galaxy".

You will receive the following items in the package:
11 Videos with a total running time of 10 hours (£2000 worth of training)
the completed Sketchup model (back saved to Sketchup 18 so that it is compatible with version 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021) with all scenes and NO sections so you can practice on the clean model
You will also receive the completed Layout file (back saved to Sketchup 2018 so that it is compatible with version 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021)
As above you will also receive all of the section files for you to be able to practice the sectioning technique that I demonstrate.
NB:A note on versions for Sketchup and Layout - new versions (2021 files) cannot be opened in old versions of Sketchup or Layout therefore I have saved all the models and Layout files as 2018 versions meaning that if you have newer versions of the software (2019, 2020 and 2021) you will be able to open the model hopefully eliminating the need for you to upgrade to the latest version of Sketchup

Plugins used include
Solid inspector 2
Joint push pull
All available for free from Sketchup extension library or sketchucation.com
It is recommended that you also download my scrapbook for LayOut. This will save you a lot of additional time when putting your 2D construction drawings together.
Also please note: you may want to download the font spectre verde from here for free https://www.1001fonts.com/spectre-verde-bb-font.html
If you do not have this font on your system then the fonts in the layout file provided will revert to your own default font. Which is fine but if you want it to look the same as my file you should download and install spectre verde.
A comprehensive 10 hour tutorial covering my workflow from start to finish, including research, blocking out the 3D model, setting up the drawing space in Layout and producing a working Plan and Elevation of a New York loft apartment
