Meet ComponentFinder - our super convenient tool, designed for, not merely browsing your library, but for actually finding the components you need. Easy, fast and all within SketchUp!

  • Enhanced Browsing - Choose the best way to view your components (navigation or flat-files)

  • Powerful Search - Quickly filter through your open tabs and components

  • Zoom In / Zoom Out - See larger or smaller component thumbnails

  • Save Components - Save components into ComponentFinder directly from Sketchup

  • Open multiple tabs at once - Select multiple folders from your local library and add them into ComponentFinder, all at once

ComponentFinder is an evolution of the FlexTools Favorites Library. It will now work with all components, not only with “flex”.

You can get it here:


We just launched a beta version of ComponentFinder. Hooray!

Looking for people to help us test and improve it.

And yes, it’s FREE!

One main question: This helps find find components where? Local hard disk? 3D Warehouse? Elsewhere?

Slowing down the video, it looks like locally.

Yes, it’s for finding components that are on your local hard disk.

Glad to announce ComponentFinder was updated to version 0.8.0 :D

The highlights:

  • Folder scanning depth is now increased from 5 levels deep to infinity! (and beyond…)

  • The maximum number of components in an open folder tab is now up to 6000!

  • When opening a new folder tab, the scanning will be going on in the background so you can continue working while it’s scanning. Components will be added as they are discovered.

  • You can now cancel the scan anytime.

  • Faster loading of open folder tabs during CF startup.

  • An additional larger zoom level was added.

  • You can click on the folder name and it then shows the full path instead.

  • When hovering over components, a tooltip appears with the full path.

  • The annoying bug where components’ thumbnails would suddenly break? Squashed! :knockout:
