How to show single component in LayOut?


#1

I have woodworking project with multiple components which I would like to show in LayOut with details/dimensions(top, left, front, iso) for the engineer, who is going to actually make components from the wood. How can I place individual components into LayOut, without creating separate .skp for each of them?

One way is to put each component on a separate layer, then make as many scenes as there are different components in SU, with only one component layer turned on in each scene.

Use these scenes in individual viewports in Layout, but make sure not to edit them in Layout otherwise you will disconnect any edits to the SU model from its linked viewport.

You can also export components to separate files and reference those in LO.


#4

yes, but I would like to avoid it.
