Is there a way to create a tray for groups (specifically NOT components) either in sketchup or through the use of one of the plugins/extensions?
I have asked some questions before regarding my problem but still being new to sketchup, sometimes i’m not looking at the problem the right way or i don’t understand how to ask the right question.
I come from years of using MS Visio so i am used to having a window that has all of my pre-drawn “stencils” and when i would grab on and drag it onto the main drawing area I would have a new object not linked to anything and ready to be edited in any way without consequence to other parts of my drawing.
I understand the power of components and they are useful for some of what i do. but when i need to make multiple unique versions of the beams that im working with (so i can change the length) every time i “make unique” it adds a copy to the component window, and now im sorting through 400 copies of the same object in the component window just to find one of the components i do actually need.
I guess just like framing a house (in skectchup) i would not want create every 2x4 from scratch but if i make a 2x4 component things get messy fast.
Thanks for the help
