The book starts with a hefty promise: to "elevate your sketchup skill and design workflow to the highest radical extremes of efficiency" and it delivers on this promise - in spades and then some.
Chapter's 1,2 & 4 were pretty straight forward and would be invaluable to a beginner. For me the book really began to deliver on its promise from chapter three and especially chapter 5 and onward.
The author starts by getting you organized, not just in SketchUp and layout, but first on your computer by dictating how and where to download files and provides a great organizational structure for project management. How many times have you saved a project file as "Project xyz final" only to have that revised and saved as final version 2, or Final final V3?. I thought I already had a pretty good project management file structure... now it's even better.
In chapters 5 & 6 the author imparts a strict regimen that will enable one to use scenes not just as a presentation of images for a project, but as a powerful tool in itself, to save you time and maximize the efficiencies that are inherent in SketchUp. (if only we knew).
Within hours of reading these chapters I had set up my own regimen incorporating most of the methods outlined to add to my own templates. I now feel more in control than ever before and the time I will save in the future will be considerable, due to the improved workflows that Michael clearly and succinctly explains in his book.
The layout chapters (9-13) were also very well explained and would be an awesome introduction for beginner and intermediate users, who wish to turn 3D models into 2D and 3D construction documents.
The entire book is very well written. It explains many of the settings one should set up that are normally overlooked , even if you have been using SketchUp for many years.. There's just a lot of stuff you don't know, you don't know. The books strengths are in clearly communicating very detailed settings to explain the guts of SketchUp tools and dialogue settings, so you use them properly and efficiently to not only just work faster, but to also communicate ideas, concepts, and construction documents to a greater intensity and clarity.
The book has lots of images with very specific details for setting up SketchUp, on almost every single page. The only improvement I would suggest for later editions is to make those images a little larger. The highlighted in blue tips were also a nice touch. and the accompanying tutorials and additional data available on his website are a godsend and invaluable to have
Long live Sketchup - It rocks. As does this book: Two thumbs up and five stars all the away.
The last four chapters were well done. The only brain freeze I saw was on page 205 where there is an inapplicable reference to CF (CompactFlash) cards in the Tip box. The EOS 6D of course only uses SD (Secure Digital) cards
My humble opinion is that the pictures in the book are lo-key and dark, and lack any factor that would make you want to have a camera that could make the shots in the book. One of the pictures that I did find interesting was on page 73, (3.1), in the chapter Working with Exposure. Unfortunately, as described in the caption the picture was taken with a shutter speed of 1/8000, and the 6D offers a max shutter speed of 1/4000. I did a small amount of investigating, just looking at the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon of the author's previously published book on speed lights. Sure enough, the pictures 3.1, 3.5, 3.6 and 9.12 were there. The speed light book was certainly put together before the 6D was manufactured. It bothers me that the author/publisher/camera manufacturer have all missed a chance to actually show what the subject of the book can do. Would it be that hard to go and take some useable pictures with it, for a book you are getting paid to write?
At the start of the book is the Quick Tour. On page 3 the author uses the symbol for the Quick Control button instead of the Quick Control dial. On page 4 there is a discussion of the Quick Control button, but no picture of it until page 23. This is in the so-called Quick Tour section, and by not showing this important button, I don't think a person new to the camera, or especially to the EOS system, will find the tour very quick. Likewise, in the Quick Tour, in a Tip box, the author recommends shooting in RAW to get the best image quality possible. To a newcomer to the DSLR world, this will not result in anything quick, especially when they discover there is a software component to RAW shooting. I would have just left the 14 page Quick Tour out of the book.
Skipping to page 42, the author refers to the maximum burst rate with full resolution RAW files as approximately 4.54 fps. Wow, what exactitude, but alas an error; the real number is 14, as stated on his chart on page 46. The column of that chart is unfortunately marred by a heading that refers to UDMA Card. Again, this camera does not use Compact Flash cards, and UDMA is a CF card designation. Moving right along, the picture caption on page 53 (2.8) refers to a Canon 7.4-44.4mm, f2.8-4.8 USM lens. I don't know where all the extra 4's came from in Chapter 2. Other errors in picture captions occur on page 71 where there is reference to a picture taken at f/2.5 with a lens reported as Canon 28-70mm, f/2.8L USM, and on page117 (3.21) an exposure of f/2.8 with a Canon 17-40mm, f/4L USM. It would be great if our lenses could have wider apertures than expected!
On page 84 the author begins the use of the word simultaneous, however, what is really meant, and correct is continuous. Our cameras only have one sensor, and therefore we cannot take simultaneous pictures. The Owner's Manual uses continuous, and it is hard to blame the author for trying to find a synonym, but simultaneous is not one.
Another instance where copy/paste may have plagued the author is found on page 103 where he shows the symbol for the Metering mode selection button, but has WB next to it, as I believe some previous Canon EOS cameras have had. Unfortunately, the 6D does not have White Balance on a button, and it has been called out as a weakness by some, as you have to go to the menus to chose the White Balance.
Finally, this sentence (?) concludes a paragraph on page 135: "In addition, even if you shoot JPEG, which automatically converts 14-bit files to 8-bit files in the camera." I guess it is just an editing, or lack thereof, problem.
Wait, there is more? This time the author is off the hook. This book is called a Digital Field Guide. But it is one of those books with only a glue binding. It will not lay flat. If you bend it too far the pages will start to pop out. I think they should drop the Field Guide (well, it's not Digital, either) from the title. If I cared about the book, I would be afraid to take it outdoors!
This was the third disappointing book on the Canon EOS 6D that I have reviewed. I continue to recommend downloading the PDF from the Canon web site of the complete 404 page Instruction Manual (and using Send to Kindle), or the purchase of "Canon 6D Experience" an e-book by Douglas J. Klostermann for $9.99 (Plus, he has the advantage, and stated intention, of removing any of the gremlins that make their way into print).
Otherwise, I love that this book assumes you are familiar with Sketchup or know where to get beginner information. The organization of any CAD project requires a system for success. This author knows architecture, Sketchup, and how to usefully tie them together. I have been weary of using Sketchup as a CAD program as it seemed too limited. But this book clearly spells out how to do it.
Sketchup is a less expensive program, but that is not the strongest argument for using it. While Sketchup does not have a lot of automated and parametric features built in, it does give you compete control over your design and documentation. Many highly automated CAD programs can get you along way faster, but you will find yourself fighting the automation to do any customization. Much of the automation in other CAD programs is there to sell the program. You trade control, flexibility and simplicity in Sketchup for automation, hype and confusing work-arounds in overly developed BIM/CAD programs.
The other thing that would help in this book is to show a few screen-shots for Mac users when the dialog boxes are different, and they are quite different sometimes.
In any case, if you are curious about how to make Sketchup a viable app for architecture, I would highly recommend this book.
