On nearly every remodel. I can easily manipulate the design and send an update to the customer in a pdf.

Once they are ready to move forward I can pull all my measurement of with the dimensions tool and send to all my subs for a quote.

Love it!

I use Pro version, the difference is not so bid between the two... The pro version comes with Layout whis is a powerful feature. Also with pro you can export in several formats and it has a Style Builder which you can use to make cool drawing styles and a few other extras.

So where do you get started with learning sketch up? I know they have some tutorial videos but are there any other good resources you guys have found or just lots of playing with it?
