Hey SketchUp Community,
i am currently working on a model of a human in SketchUp Pro 2017 and I am experiencing a bug happening, which causes components to change its size to very huge or very small.
What I have been doing is creating a human body out of many dynamic components. So as you can see in the picture without bug, i did create a body consisting of leg, arm, head, lower torso and upper torso. These components are consisting of components itself. For Example, the dynamic component leg (named ‘Bein_links’) is consisting of the dynamic components “OS_links” and “US_links” (which is a german abbreviation and stands for Upper leg left and lower leg left).
On the component Mannequin which is the top component I want to create a variable named P which is a number for different body sizes. So for example P=1 stands for a short male person, P=2 stands for an average male person. I want to give this variable down to the next component (for example Bein_links–>P=Mannequin!P).
And this is the part where i am experiencing the bug. When i connect those P- Variables as I explained above, the size of the lower leg is automatically changing down to size 0 in just a few steps, though there is nothing changing or faulty in the formula itself which I used to give a size to the lower leg.
I have attached some pictures so you guys can see what i am trying to talk about.
Has anyone experienced similar problems? I also had the situation in another version of the model, that the size is changing to an infinetly long size before it completely disappears.
Perhaps it has to do with the complexity of the model, consisting of many subcomponents?
I am very grateful for any tips, suggestions or solutions you guys can come up with, as i am currently stuck in a dead end.
Thanks for taking the time!
