Can profile builder show the center line of steel profile in Sketchup layout?

I have built a model with steel profiles by using profile builder, is there any way I could show the profiles in red lines in the exported top view? Thanks!

Not that I am aware of. You can edit the path, but it would show the basic line color (black), but not at the same time. Would be nice though

You can select all steel members and switch to ‘path mode’ which will show the centerlines (if you used a center placement point to create them). Use tag settings to control the visibility of the profile widgets when in path mode.


I have to try this. I wonder if the tag assignment has a centerline setting does that show up in layout? Could be nice tool for schematic framing plans.

Now that I think about it PB3 might create a tag for those paths.
