Is it possible to divorce a copied component so it can be further modified without effecting the original or other copies?
- Point to the copy.
- Click the right button on your mouse (or pointing device.)
- Choose “Make Unique” from the popup context menu.
SketchUp will create a unique component definition for the copy, using the same name, but adding a hash character and number suffix.
Has a foot note to Dans reply. You can select a few component not just one , so those chosen will alter together.
