From the Back Cover

Expert SketchUp instructor Mike Tadros shows you his techniques for using SketchUp in a professional, production-oriented environment, allowing you to finish drawings faster and get better results, whether you work alone or in a multiperson studio. Starting with customizing SketchUp preferences for maximum efficiency, Mike takes you through a professional SketchUp workflow--from setting up your workspace to installing Ruby scripts to importing CAD files and images to managing libraries to exporting your finished product.

In Real World Google SketchUp you'll learn how to:
  • Turn your site plans, floor plans, and elevations into 3D SketchUp models
  • Import your own digital photos and hand-drawn imagery into SketchUp
  • Create animated fly-throroughs by saving scenes and exporting movie files
  • Use Google Earth to create site models and utilize the Google 3D Warehouse to add elements to your models

This is not the book you should buy to learn SketchUp. For that I recommend two others: Start with Google SketchUp 7 for Dummies; follow up with Google SketchUp Cookbook if you want/need to know the program more in depth, say for your work. In either case, it's then that you should definitely read Mike Tadros' excellent Real World Google SketchUp 7. This book extends your understanding of the power of the program.

Starting out with setting up your keyboard shortcuts and workspace and carrying on through using templates, scripts, and extensions, Mike covers the groundwork very well. For me, the core of the "real world" was dealing with site plans, importing CAD files, and building exteriors and interiors because that's part of my work. He also thoroughly goes through the creation and application of textures for the model, including how to build a model using a photograph, which is absolutely one of SketchUp's strengths.

Although I don't see myself creating dynamic components anytime soon, the author's section on this topic is more in-depth and clear than any I've read.

Mike carefully takes us through creating animations, adding dimensions, preparing your model for presentation and printing. Finally, the videos on the bonus CD are terrific, and are teasers for his superb website, and its hours of SketchUp training.

I think the content in the book is useful, especially for beginners, but there were so many typos in the tutorials that it made them hard to follow.

its well written and blah blah blah .. only buy this if you want to do 3d stuff to show other people. otherwise, by a more technical book that tells you how to actually produce better drawings etc. Also, if you dont own the Pro version, dont bother.

I really was expecting more from this book after reading the reviews. This should be rated as a beginner level book.
