Resource Index for each chapter:

CH 4: FILE AND FOLDER MANAGEMENT

In CH 4, we discuss the use of PROJECT folders. We have created a PROJECT folder template and this can save you a lot of time on your new projects. Download it here.

CH 7: THE PROFESSIONAL’S SKETCHUP ENVIRONMENT

In Chapter 7 we go over shortcuts in SketchUp. Here is the official ‘BD_Shortcuts’ list that we talk about. Practice with them, memorize them, and you’ll be sure to double or triple your proficiency speed by reducing scrolling and clicks!

CH 8: SKETCHUP COLLECTIONS

In Chapter 8 we talk about Styles, HATCH, and collections. These are like a palette that you can use to build, customize, and create your own unique styles for your projects. Here are the ones we used in the artwork figures in the book.

We’ve gathered a handful of Lumion effects here that you can quickly load.
