Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the scenes, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So In Chapter 05-06 we're going to be…setting up the scenes.…The process of adding elements and layers to scenes…is very simple.…The important thing, when you're tracing these scenes,…is that the geometry locations between the scenes…is the same, and you move it as little as possible.…There's nothing worse than things flying around…all over the place.…We'll be using a couple of little tips and tricks…to get everything to line up very nicely.…It's nothing complicated.…So before we start, we'd better make sure…we don't get any warnings from the Style Manager.…
So under the layers, we just click on this button here,…and untick Calibri there,…and that's going to set our Styles back the way they were.…And another tip, when you're creating lots of scenes,…is not necessarily to sort of add them all at one go,…which you can do through the Scenes Manager,…but add them one at a time,…so what happens then is the content that's on one scene…will get transferred to the next.…If you created a whole load in one go,…then you can have a whole load…
