Shop drawings for what kind of projects?

is there a video on how sketchup works? not the tools. an example if i have model already make can i make a seperate page to make items then move them to my shop model?

making french cleats for each tool.

You can’t make a separate page in SketchUp but you can create scenes to show different parts of the model. Then, in LayOut you use those scene to create shop drawings.

I made French cleats for my shop so I’m excited to see you model them.

After following along with some of the training videos shared above, you might want to post a .skp file of your attempts at modelling with any problems you run into. Then others can offer suggestions.

Good luck.
