I am hoping that someone can assist - Is there a way do a default setting for ones models? Sketchup always opens in Imperial (…how you Americans survive, I don’t know!!) whilst I only work in metric, I also always have to set font sizes for each new document. Would be very happy if there were a way to avoid this. Thank you.
Setup a new file as you see fit and then save it as a template, you can set it to be the default template so that its the basis for any new file.
My default template has:
- 20ish Tags
- 3 scenes
- units/dim styles/text etc
- Basic Enscape render settings
- And a few other bits and bobs
You can create your own template to start with when starting a new model.
The template has your own settings (according what is optional in SketchUp!) like units, precision, previously created scenes with tags you use regularly, … and more that can be saved in a model. The model is saved as a skp and then you select it to be used as the furure default template. Just as easy as that.
ouch!, @PaulRussam just beat me at that.
