Design Presentation documents include page layouts that combine technical drawings with paragraphs/columns of text and various inset images (photos, renders, detail views) …plus whatever else the designer wants to use to communicate the project’s design intentions and outcomes. Usually it’s presented to the client or a civic authority.
My presentation documents range from about 5 to 30 pages depending on the project scale and number of drawings included. The pages are generally indexed (eg title page, contents page , etc).
Since architectural and landscape designers often use SketchUp to prepare the Preliminary and Concept design phases of a project, this is also commonly the phase where the “Design Presentation Document” is utilised most.
At the moment it isn’t practical to create such a document in LayOut, so a designer must use LO to export a series of PDFs that are then compiled into a document created using other software (most often this is InDesign).
It is frustrating that LayOut acts only as an output of SketchUp when it has a wide range of tools that could be used to create a decent-looking presentation document.
Increasingly, these documents are utilising formats such as animations (avi), interactive PDFs (layers) and rotateable 3d views. It’s 2020 after all. Enabling a rotateable 3d model view (eg SketchFab) is where SKP+LO could have a real advantage over the competiton!
