Here is the process to get your SketchUp model into LayOut. Just drag and drop it in. No need to export to LayOut from SketchUp.
Next, make sure to select the view. Technically you should set up scenes and styles in SketchUp first but you can learn that later when time permits. For now, you can just select your view on the page, then choose from the ‘Standard View’ dropdown. With front elevation chosen, then select a scale.
You can see here that it is that the model is now to scale by adding a dimension in LayOut to check against your scale bar:
Then export to PDF.
By default your model view will render as ‘Raster’, meaning the lines pixelate.

It’s recommended for a drawing like this to switch to ‘Hybrid’ mode as it make sthe lines nice and crisp as Vector lines. Any textures/materials stay rasterized hence the ‘Hybrid’ name:
Lastly, I recommend switching your styles in LayOut to remove the background color (sky and ground). You can do this in the ‘Styles’ section of the ‘SketchUp Model’ panel. Click the dropdown next to the home icon and look for ‘Default Styles’. I chose simple black and white ‘hidden line’ but you can use anything you like.
Then repeat the step for each view you want to show, ie side view, etc. good luck!!!
