SketchUp for Construction Drawings

A few weeks ago, we achieved geek world fame by being featured on SketchUpdate blog in relation to construction drawings in SketchUp. Now we have uploaded the second of two videos about the topic. This second one illustrates more the technique of creating construction information in the SketchUp model.

We hope to start getting more active with useful and interesting videos this year. Stay tuned!..

that looks pretty awesome. My question would be, is it an efficient work flow to do?
I don't question that SketchUp can do anything, but at what cost on time?
And specially, how convienent it is to modify a construction drawing once some mistake is found?

Hey thanks for posting your comments. Apologies for the slow response.... To respond to Marti's point regarding cost on time: To carry out these drawings takes time, which has a lot to do with the designs being bespoke with newly formulated construction details.

Admittedly, I would like the process to be easier/ shorter, and I believe that development needs to occur in the area of extracting 2D construction details from the SketchUp model (whether by Google or some other developer). However, my distinct impression is that such drawings don't take any longer to complete in comparison to other 3D "BIM" drawing systems out there.
