Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding components and layers, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So in chapter 05-04, I just want to go over…the relationship between the components and the layers…when we create these elements.…Up til now we haven't created any layers,…so if we go to our Layer window and just expand that,…we've only got Layer0.…This is the one that we get by default.…Can't change that at all.…And if we also drag out our Components.…Let's just expand that.…We've got the in-model components, which are these,…and we've also got the, if you go use this back button,…we'll have our window components there as well.…
These don't change, these will never change.…The profile of the shapes will stay the same…unless we actually opened up this SketchUp file…and manipulated it and then saved it…into the Window Components folder.…If we go back to the in-model components,…now things that were skirting boards,…which were just a profile.…For example, in the window components,…which we created, in the model components…are now actual objects, so let's just go down…to skirting board for example, and just click on this.…
