I use SketchUp and LayOut primarily for custom furniture design. In my SketchUp model, I organize details and assemblies for LayOut views with Layers and Scenes.
Once I send my SketchUp model to LayOut and work on creating all of the needed views, I find one necessary action very repetitive: manually resizing each viewport to slightly bigger than the visible, scaled geometry in the view.
My question: Does LayOut have the optional capability, inherently or through an extension, to automatically resize the viewport based on the geometry depicted within the view?
If not, I will consider submitting this functionality as a LayOut Feature Request. I believe this functionality would increase the efficiency of creating drawings, especially for 3D models consisting of many details and sub-assemblies.
As an added benefit, this functionality would be very helpful in the situation where a new Scene is applied to a viewport, and the geometry doesn’t appear within the existing bounds of the the viewport. As careful as I try to be, preparing my SketchUp model for LayOut, this happens to me fairly often.
Thanks in advance for your insights and alternative suggestions!
All the best,
