Creating Scenes with Layers for a small woodworking project

modeling

#1

I’ve been using Sketchup Pro 2018 to learn to do some modeling for various woodworking projects. First I modeled a table from a youtube video in which the guy had a table on one (Main) scene and he copied the table on the same layer but saved in to a second (Assembly) scene, this way he could show the table whole on one layer and without the top on a second layer. He then showed how to have measurements and labels show on the one layer and not the other.

I have tried to follow this to show each and every piece on its own scene and layer but I am getting lost everytime!

How can I model a piece of furniture such as a dresser and show each piece by itself with its own measurements?

Can someone please steer me in the right direction be it a video or a book?

Here is the video…

I use SketchUp to create furniture plans and I can help you with this. His process seems a bit confusing and convoluted to me

If you want, I could show you in person. Drop me a PM and we’ll work it out.

In Person??


#4

Live screen share unless you are local to me.


#5

Oh, I am in the Eastern time zone and would need to do it at an earlier time, say, around noon!


#6

You mean like noon tomorrow? No big deal. I’ll send you a PM.


#7

That would be great if you don’t mind!

How exactly does that work?


#8

PM sent.

Dave,
I am ready to send a project to LayOut but I forget if you broke it down into scenes before or after sending it to LayOut?

Hi Rich,

Scenes in SketchUp before sending to LayOut. Each scene is a view of the model they way you want to show it in LayOut.

Do you want to connect again?

Yeah if you don’t mind, that’d be great.
