Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploding model objects, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut (2015).
- So, Chapter 10-05 Exploding Model Objects.…What we're gonna do is create the stairs…from the SketchUp Model.…But, we're not going to link it,…like we've done with this bit.…We're just gonna take the geometry…and we're gonna Explode it from the drawing.…So, it's no longer part of the link.…So, it's not even embedded in the Hard drive.…It's just a series of lines that live…inside of the LayOut sheet.…So, we're gonna use this bit.…This is part of our linked model.…And so, I'm gonna copy this.…
So, Ctrl to copy, or the Alt key on the Mac.…And then, I will copy another version of it there.…Now, this one and this one are both Vector at the moment.…So, we go down to our SketchUp Model…and we see Vector for that one and Vector for that one.…If I turn this one into a raster image,…this then puts the background back in.…And, if I was to Right Click and Explode.…So, now this is no longer a part of the SketchUp Model.…
This is just a 2D image on my sheet.…So, Right Click.…All I can do now is Open with Photoshop.…I can't Relink this back.…
