I work with Sketch-up pro and have for several years now. We are wanting to create construction documents from Sketch-up without having to hire a draftsman to do it. I am not able to find how to make layers in my sketch-up models? Can someone point me to a video to watch or explain how to create layers?
They are called Tags in newer versions. The Tags palette is used to create and work with them.
Before you dive in to creating a model, make sure you fully understand how to use tags in SketchUp. Start with the following link.
In SketchUp, you can use Tags to organize objects and control their visibility. By hiding tagged objects in one click, you can hide large chunks of your model to find things faster, and even speed up SketchUp a bit too. Especially on large projects,...
In a nutshell, leave Untagged active at all times. Create and leave all geometry (edges and faces) untagged. Give tags to components and groups.
Thank you both for the information. I found the Tags function so that works well.
Also, I will watch the link that you sent. Thank you for that. Doe either of you do construction documents?
Most of the construction documents I make are for furniture and other projects of that sort.
