Cut from slice overlay not as per model viewport?

Can anyone here help me with an issue I have with importing a section viewport into layout and also a cut from slice section and where the 2 don’t appear the same size?
What I do is make the section with a style with planes enabled. Then switch to a style with no planes so I can see it. Then move it out and send it to another folder where I colour the section cut in. Then I insert it to layout at correct ortho scale (same as viewport with cut) move to overlay it on another layer and the 2 are not the same size. They each measure the same but are not physically the same and are inserted at the same scale. Where have I gone wrong?

It sounds to me as if you have a mismatch between files. You should be able to do all of this within a single SketchUp file. The easiest thing to do would be to use layers to display only what you need for a given scene.

Could you share the LO file that shows what you are trying to do? If you don’t want to share it publicly, send it in a PM.

Hi Dave
I have been using layers and scenes with only the cut slice I wanted in view. That uis why \I am so baffled!
How do I send the files to you?

If you want to send it by private message and it is no more than 3 Mb, click on my name and choose Message. Then you can use the Upload button, 7th from the left in the row above the window where you type your text, to attach the file. Otherwise, upload it to DropBox and share the link with me in a PM.
