How do you use sketchup for architectural presentations?



In my work as an architect I mostly use Sketchup to get a hold on the volumes. It’s simply the best software for that purpose. Plans and elevations is done in Autocad Architecture (in my case).
For a while I’ve been watching this community to be updated on the use of Sketchup. And it’s remarkeble what you can do, mostly very detailed work for rendering purpose.But how do you use sketchup for architectural presentations?Is it for clean renderings, for simple “2D” plans and elevations, perspektiv sketches, volumes for handsketching on tracingpaper or…?

Please help.

I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.

You must be new here.

We’re all just fake golf course architects - none of us know a god damned thing.

We can’t help you.


if you say width&angles, tree removal and center-line bunkering enough people will just believe you know your stuff.


Maybe mix in some templates and green complexes if you really want to sound smart.


Is this a bot?


Speak for yourself. I’ve listened to a couple podcasts.


I would ask these fine folks:


Have to throw out some names too. Raynor, Tilly, Ross, etc. Have to show that you know the names and are therefore in the class of GCA.


I hear that centerline bunkers are all the rage these days


Throw in “Golden Age”, “Minimalism”, and “well-suited for match play” as well.
