Organize a SketchUp Model With Components — 3 Comments

  1. There is no question that components are key in Sketchup. Components help you organize your model, but more important (at least in my line of work) is that components can be saved as individual files and then imported into other Sketchup models. When you update the base component file, you can reload the component in other Sketchup files that use them. I use this in my solar energy system design business. We have a huge library of solar panels and other related items like roof vents and plumbing stacks. This makes it easy to quickly generate layouts and renderings for solar panels on roofs. If a different solar panel is selected, it is really easy to reload a different component in the model.
