Learning Adobe Illustrator has helped me out a lot on the design side of my business. I know their are other simpler programs out their that will create printable templates. However being able to converse with other design professionals such as interior designers and architects in a language they understand, has gotten me hired for the job many times. The Adobe CC seems to be the industry standard among may design professionals.

So in this video I show you a way to use Adobe Illustrator to create a printable template similar to the one used on the pattern I carved out in last weeks build a bookshelf video. I go from A screen shot in SketchUp to a paper pattern that is printed to scale with registration marks to help tape the sheets together. I printed the pattern out on my inkjet on standard 8 1/2″ by 11″ paper.

It’s about taking your design from SketchUp and printing it to scale so you can cut it out in wood or whatever materials you are building from. That’s what the HELL it’s about.
