SketchUp & LayOut Master Class: Part 7A - 9C.
SketchUp and LayOut Master Class: PARTS 7A - 9C. 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. this is a follow up course, please complete parts 1A - 4B and 5A - 6C first.
PART 7A - 9C.
An almost 10 hour (including bonus content) comprehensive tutorial demonstrating how I produce set designs for the major motion picture industry. Broken down into 9 easy-to-manage episodes (with a bonus 10th episode) using the method demonstrated in my previous tutorials (parts 1A - 4B and parts 5A - 6C), we will look at how to produce working construction drawings for all of the door details from the original course. We will look at how to produce CNC files and a typical wall and step detail, where I also show you my method for post process work in Photoshop. Not only that you will also receive a bonus tutorial on how to model Georgian panelled doors along with a pack of 6 license-free door models that you can use in your own designs.
Based on working practices I have used to create construction drawings for clients such as Marvel Studios, Disney Studios, 20th Century Fox, Eon, Warner Brothers and Netflix, I will guide you through the best practice on how to use your existing model to create construction documents for all of the above mentioned details.
Follow along at your own pace and once you complete the course you will have another 4 portfolio-worthy drawings. This course is meant as an add-on to the original tutorials, however it can also be used as a stand-alone course as you will receive all the necessary assets (3D models and documentation) to work with - don't worry if you are yet to complete any of the original tutorials.
You will receive the following items in the package:
10 videos with a total running time of 9 hours 47 minutes and 15 seconds (£2,400 worth of training if this was a one-on-one session in the real world)
The completed SketchUp model of the original set to use as a master file (back-saved to SketchUp 18 so that it is compatible with older versions of the software)
You will also receive the 2 door models and a CNC model file (back-saved to SketchUp 2018)
The completed LayOut files x4 (back-saved to Sketchup 2018)
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. This means 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.

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. This is fine, but if you want it to look the same as my file you should download and install Spectre Verde.
Additionally, it is recommended that you download my scrapbook for LayOut. Thank you.
A comprehensive 9 hour tutorial covering my workflow from start to finish on how to produce door detail sheets, CNC files and how I do my post process in photoshop.
