I am fairly new to using SketchUp and Layout. I work in the architectural field designing high-end kitchens and built in furniture and have used more 3D modeling and cabinet specific design programs than I can count on both hands.
Recently we started using a cabinet specific program called Mosaik which is sort of, kind of, a plug-in that works with SketchUp and allows you to open your models in SketchUp when you are done. After discovering that we can lay out elevations/section scenes in SketchUp and then lay them out in Layout just opened up a whole new world for me. I am used to bouncing DXFs from my 3D models and then painstakingly put them on specific layers and dimension in AutoCAD.
To make a long story short I was hoping to cut AutoCAD out of the equation. But I discovered an issue. I have a reveal on a cabinet door that is an 1/8". When I insert my elevation to layout, then convert it to vector so its cleaner and put it on 3/4" scale, the reveal is non existent and you can’t measure it. It’s almost like the lines are too thick and I read on a previous post theres no way of adjusting line weights in SketchUp? When I go up to 1-1/2" scale the reveal becomes visible but only reads a 1/64" when I dimension it. Is there something I am doing wrong or is there a way to get Layout to dimension something like 3/32" or an 1/8" in 3/4" or 1" scale.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
