Export a group from one sketchup file to another


#1

What is the best way to export/import a group from one sketchup file to another sketchup file?
I don’t’ see an option to select a group or part of sketchup model as a .SKP format file for exporting.
Thank you

Copy and paste is the most direct.
Or create a component library and bring them in from the component browser.

Groups have no Save As… options, but components do. So you can right-click a group and select Make Component. Once the object is a component, a Save As… option will appear in the context menu, allowing you to save it as a .skp file, or, as Box mentioned, you can add the component to a new or existing collection for access from within other models via the Component browser.
