So I’ve created a detailed model with a physical size of about 2m x 2m. It had a lot of detail to it so I set my Units to meters and created it 100 times actual size. I’ve heard several people suggest this because SketchUp has problems with very small objects. Everything went fine. I had no problems building the model. I painted all faces either wood grain or basic yellow. Everything was in groups. No components. When painting I painted the faces of each object rather than the group itself.
When I was was finished I added everything to a new group and scaled it down to 0.01%. That worked fine.
The problems began when I tried applying materials to the scaled down model. Materials were sized as if the model were still the original scale. The materials were 1/100th of their size when applied to a face. I tried copying the scaled down version to a brand new model and the problem persisted. When I measure the scaled down model it shows the correct smaller dimensions.
Should I not have added any colours or materials to the larger model before scaling it down?
Any help would be appreciated.
I’ll add that I’m running SketchUp Pro Version 23.0.366 on a Mac Studio running Ventura 13.2.1
