Using SketchUp Layers to Visualize Design Variations
SketchUp guru Dave Richards shows you a few ways to leverage layers to show some different things in your models
In my previous post I talked about some of the basics of layer usage in SketchUp. Now I’d like to show you a few ways to leverage layers to show some different things in your models.
In this video I’ll demonstrate how you can show different options in your model. In the example, I’ll change out the hardware on the cabinet below. Then I’ll show you a simple way to animate your model and for those using SketchUp 2019, I’ll show one way you can use the new dashes feature to show hidden details.
By the way, as part of setting up to show different hardware, I am leveraging a feature that allows you to replace selected components with other ones. In order to make this work quickly and easily, you need to make your components so they have the same relative insertion points. I did a blog post quite awhile back on this which you can see here.
