I have finally mostly finished modelling our construction project this summer. I’d like to be as efficient and effective as possible in my Component naming scheme before transferring to Layout drawings though. I have applied as much logic as my limited SketchUp experience will allow in these Component names.
Here is an example…
Framing - Level Two Floor - 2X8 - Main Section - Joist#2
I’ve labelled everything in my model starting with the material type, in this example ‘Framing’. Every subsequent distinction is delineated with a hyphen. This model has several hundred unique framing elements, therefore several hundred components start with ‘Framing’. Is there a way to make a wholesale name change in my component library, say from ‘Framing’ to ‘Frmg’, affecting every single instance? There are several examples like this… of changes in my component names that I would like to make, some for the sake of abbreviation and some for clarification. I wouldn’t want to go through and do them all one at a time.
I can’t find anything within SketchUp to do this but perhaps someone out there has already created a routine that would sort this out? Any help would be gratefully received.
