5 Work­ing with Sketchup’s Com­po­nents

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Better Environments -

I think com­po­nents are vi­tal, but they’re often over­looked when us­ing sketchup. Right-click and se­lect Make Com­po­nent to turn your ob­ject into not just a group, but an In­stanced Group. This means you can copy and paste it mul­ti­ple times, and what­ever you do to one In­stance will be done to the rest. Mod­u­lar build­ing like this saves lots of time, and com­po­nents can be nested in­side other com­po­nents. Ev­ery­thing in my mod­els is cleanly split into these, and con­trol­ling this group­ing helps to pre­vent fu­ture headaches.
