How to copy components for a new scene without them showing in old scenes


I am getting tired of having to hide components I copy for a new scene each time I create a new one. Is there a way to lock what shows in each scene so when I copy components for a new one I am not having to go back and rehide the newly copied stuff in all my old scenes?


Sounds like you need to be using tags instead of hiding objects.

Share your .skp file so we can see what it is you are trying to accomplish. Send it to me in a PM if you don’t want to make it public. You shouldn’t need to be making copies of components for each scene.

OutfeedTableRedrawn.skp (2.3 MB)

So what is it you are wanting to accomplish with these multiple copies of the components? From what I can see in your model you should be able to do everything with basically one copy of the outfeed table.
