I think it would be helpful if we could give components unique cuts. For example, say all the baseboards in a house are the same shape, but each have unique cuts. In SketchUp, I’d have to use unique components to model that. But I’d have to modify each unique component to edit the profile or something even though they’re all from the same shape. I think it’d be easier to have a “make unique cut” option, so each unique component just has a unique cut. If you edit the profile or something on one, then all the cut baseboards would change. Making cuts on components (like lumber, plywood, headers, pipes, etc.) is extremely common, yet I don’t know how to make unique cuts copy the original component. The tool could use a section plane, or other boolean modifiers to subtract shapes from the “unique cut” component. I wouldn’t want this tool to clutter up SketchUp’s core tools, but I think this would be a useful extension.
Is there a way already to make unique cuts to components that copy the original component? Thanks.
