    I love using SketchUp, but it's nowhere near as respected as Autocad. I can't imagine I'm any more employable because I'm amazing at SketchUp.

    they are very different tools. you wouldn't draw a 1:5 detail on sketchup, but equally, i wouldn't sit down on day one of a project and fire up Autocad (or vectorworks in my case) and start drawing in that as a way of conceptually modelling.

    sketchup = good for plastic, early modelling, also for base point for visualisations, context models

    cad = for details, hardline drawings of plans / elevations

    you can obviously export you skp model as a dwg which you can have as a greyed out model as a guide when doing your hardline.

    lots of people diss skp, but its often because they are trying to get it to do stuff it was never intended for.
