I am using Sketch Book Make 2013. I’m on a MacBook Pro. I need to draw a floor plan (with furniture layout) in 2D first but want to be able to make it 3D following Client layout approval so have done it in ketch Up rather than Layout. I am completely new.
I have managed to draw up the walls of the room but have these problems-
- The sketch plan that I imported to use as a basis - how do I now delete it from the page?
- I now need to add door and windows in plan. I believe from looking at tutorials that to do this I need to group the exterior walls and interior walls separately. Firstly is that right? Secondly I have followed tutorials so that I click on the appropriate walls with the edit tool and Alt so I can select all the necessary walls. I have then gone Edit - Make Group, but it doesn’t seem to have worked. Am I right in assuming that if it has created a group when I click back on any of the lines that should be in the group, the whole group would then be highlighted blue. If so it isn’t working and I’m stumped.
I need to finish this plan quite urgently so my other option would be to do it in layout if perhaps this is easier/quicker Two questions though please.
Having a look at layout it looks quite self explanatory except I can’t find the equivalent Tape Measure in it. How do you define the line length?
Also the file type that Layout saves as - is it compatible with Sketch Up so I could open it up in Sketch Up to develop it in 3D later?
Thank you so much for your assistance.
