Exploded Views in SketchUp Make


Can you do exploded views with the Make version or do you need the Pro version for this feature?


Make a new Scene, positioned away from your model.

Make a copy of your model, and move it to where it is visible in your new scene.

Then move the parts into an exploded view.

Make any internal components Unique before moving apart any sub components inside them.

There’s nothing different in Pro for this purpose.


As John says, this is the same between Pro and Make versions. It does require that you’ve create the model with the parts as components or groups so they aren’t stuck together.

This is one I did some time back.




y no se puede hacer el despiece de forma automatica con la opcion explode view?


No. Explode (in the context menu) explodes components and groups back to loose geometry. It is not intended for making exploded views.
