Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Moving geometry to different layers, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- We're now in chapter 05-05, and…we're moving the geometry that we've created…in the modeling up to this point…on to some layers that I have already set up…in the chapter 05-05 drawing.…If you have access to these files, then you're good to go.…If not and you want to follow along, then just pause…the video for a second.…I'll zoom in on this layer window so you get a better view…of what's going on.…So just pause now at the layers,…and then we can carry on.…
The layers sort of correspond to…the stuff that's in the outliner,…but not every object or group is on a different layer.…For example, the above ground block…and the above ground mortar would all live kind of…together on the above ground block layer, for example.…So just be wary of that.…You don't have to create them exactly like this either.…If you have your own preferred layer naming conventions,…then by all means, use those.…This is just an example to explain the process.…
Another thing that's quite useful is to again use…this color by layer, so you know instantly…
