Dynamic Component Help?

Hi All,

I’m fairly new to SketchUp and dynamic components but am looking to integrate them into my workflow and I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of some good tutorials (and/or help)! I’ve made a dynamic component for some cabinets from a few different threads I’ve found but I’m not sure how to make sure my handle detail doesn’t get squashed when i change the width of the cabinet. Eventually my hope would be to use a Hidden Attributes command to switch between handle details, I don’t know if this would affect how I set this up from the beginning? Anyway thanks in advance, attaching a photo.
Also I was thinking that another way around this might be some kind of Plug In… if anyone knows any good ones please let me know!

Thanks so much.

Make the handles as individual components and give them Pos attributes and fixed Len attributes (put an equals sign in front of the Len dimensions. If I were making the DC I would set the handle component’s origin at the middle of the length of the pull and use half the overall width of the cabinet for the X position of the pull so it’ll stay centered.

This is an example using a DC I already have. I added a drawer pull to it for this.

You might also look at the CabMaker plugin. Not free, but if your business is making cabinets, likely to be worth the cost.

See Extension | SketchUp Extension Warehouse

Realmente existe muitos poucos conteúdos gratuitos! Mais aqui no fórum todos tem ajudado muito, também trabalho com móveis e tenho uma plataforma que integra com SKP.

Atualmente estou desenvolvendo minha biblioteca
Com recursos dos componentes dinâmicos.

Aconselho a fazer sua documentação e padronização dos atributos que irá precisar para extrair. Após isso é só treinar que vai pegar o jeito rápido!

Se quiser posso compartilhar minha biblioteca com vc para usar como exemplo para criar a sua !!

Boa sorte :handshake:
