SketchUp Layout

SketchUp Layout. Although Layout got a bit of a bad rap when it was first released (many years ago!) – it has become one of the most powerful, artistic and expressive 2D drawing packages available.

Most people hate drafting in 2D. But like creating 3D models in SketchUp – Layout brings the fun! And it is much more than just a drafting board. You can create amazing presentations, diagrams, marketing material – and so much more!

Layout is also easy to learn – but if you want to get good fast and become a master – you will want to take our Learn Layout online course!
