Since the first betas we have been able to make groups and components……my question is……where do we find our components in the model we are working on? I think there was a fly out in the betas where we would see them, but I don’t see it any longer.
If I want to use more of the same component it is usually very easy.
@drchitecturedsign the capabilities that @Taxsola has referenced here are things that are on the roadmap (i.e. not yet available) in the newly released SketchUp for iPad app (nothing offered during prior betas either). For now, step 1: find an instance of the component, somewhere in the model space. Step 2 move a copy of it, or use the copy/paste options in the Conext Menu toolbar. There’s no workaround, yet, for copying instances of components that are not visible in the modeling window, but that might otherwise be available in the In Model library shown above.
Colin’s drag-n-drop approach above is one option – and perhaps the best option if you’re looking to store component libraries locally on your iPad.
Other options include:
Use the Import icon in the Main toolbar (top left corner) which offers the option to import a SketchUp file via Trimble Connect, or the Files app (and note that you can access a wide array of other 3rd party cloud services, e.g. Dropbox, Gdrive, iCloud, etc via the Files app).
Import components (and/or materials) from 3D Warehouse. You can upload components to 3DW, store them privately (or share them publicly), and organize them using folders.
