So (in laymen’s language, as a SketchUp user, I’m not a coder), what are these instances (the yellow rings) actually glued to when placing them from outside on face locations inside a parent component? See following screenshot:
The center cut off cube formerly filled the entire bounding box of the parent component.
The rings were placed from outside of the parent’s context:
- on red/blue front face location
- on green/blue right side face location
- on red/green top face location
- on slanted purple face location
The the inner “cube” shape was then scaled down by 0.5 (in edit mode of the parent) to see the rings floating.
The colored lines are there just to keep track of what the original bounding box was when making further changes to see how this would affect the rings (like rotating the parent’s axes).
