To skip the basics to directly start using SketchUp‘s intermediate and advanced techniques to perform 3D modeling jobs in every phase of your design (including everything, from basic schematics to construction documentation throughout the whole design and development process), The SketchUp Workflow for Architecture is absolutely the best choice for architects, designers, and engineers who want to take advantages of SketchUp. Because it establishes a whole workflow that is flexible enough to use, from start to end.

The SketchUp Workflow for Architecture covers helpful techniques, smart tips, and best practices (including organizing projects and workflows), which can help you make your design process much easier. Besides, it also relates to how to easily export your models into many BIM (Building Information Modeling) programs, lightly-documented LayOut toolset and provides video tutorials on more advanced methods.
