Layout document update?

I have the R5 layouts training manual last updated by Mary Fugier in April 2014. I abandoned using Layouts and went back to AutoCad for my 2d. I’m considering trying Layouts again and wondering if anything has changed in R6’s layouts and if there will be an updated Training Manual?

Hi Calypso,
We did an extensive tutorial on Layouts for Rhino 5.
It still works very well with Rhino 6 with a few exceptions.
The details that you need to know to use the tutorial with Rhino 6 are listed here

The mechanic of using layouts are the same in Rhino 5 & 6. Some of the UI is different as detailed for you on the “Tips for Using the Layout Tutorial in Rhino 6” page.

Another resource is the Rhinoceros 6 Level 1 Training Guide, Chapter 14: Printing and Layouts
You can download the models that the guide refers to here.

We plan to update the whole tutorial, probably in the Rhino 7 time frame.
Let me know if you have any specific questions or issues.
