I am using Sketchup FREE to design some pantry shelves. I want to create a group for all components that comprise the first shelf and just copy and paste all of them and move them into place for the subsequent shelves at the same time. However, I can’t figure out how to select all of the components at once because there is a frame on the inside of the shelf. Here is what it looks like from the bottom WITHOUT the bottom panel (i.e., with the bottom panel hid):
However, here it is with the bottom panel of the shelf unhid:
I WANTED TO INCLUDE A 2ND PIC OF THE SHELF WITH THE BOTTOM PANEL HERE, BUT WAS TOLD BY THIS SOFTWARE THAT NEW USERS CAN ONLY EMBED ONE PIC. PLEASE USE YOUR IMAGINATION
The group needs to include the bottom panel (so it is not desirable to create the group without the bottom panel).
Is it possible to create a group from a list of components instead of having to physically select each component to be in the group? Other approaches/ideas?
