I am fairly new to Sketchup (first post) and I have a lot still to learn. I have made some pretty awful drawings over the past several months, with geometry all over the place. I am slowly finding my way to a better place… but I’m still not quite there yet.
In my drawings I have been creating groups for everything that probably should be components- repeated items, such as individual timbers in a construction, etc… I am just now learning that component is probably the way to go here, during my self-taught: try/fail/learn/improve progression.
Anyway, I have been staying fairly organised by using layers to keep content separated into logical compartments to keep things clear and make it easier to work. And it has been going very well on my most recent project…
However… I seem to be making some mistakes that put individual groups in multiple layers, such that I can make them visible/invisible by toggling visibility on more than one layer. Prompting me to believe that I have made some error along the way.
Can anyone point me to how I can first, prevent this from happening, then possibly go back and correct? Or other useful tips for a motivated newbie?
Thanks in advance for any insight/advice.
All the very best!
