Relatively new to SketchUp and couldn’t find the answer after doing a few searches here and on google. I’m working on creating a dynamic component that will basically work as a configurator. I’m wondering what is the best way to go back and re-edit the master component each time.
Here’s what I did:
I opened a new file, drafted the geometry (several components) and then made all of that into what I’m considering my master component. I created attributes that allow me to toggle off (hide) individual walls. I then saved the component.
Now to go back and edit it further, I figured I’d navigate to the component file, open it and edit. However I can’t see any of the master components attributes or options, only the underlying components.
So back to my question:
If I want to edit my master component and lets say add a new attribute, change underlying components/geometry, etc do I need to open a new file, insert the component, edit it there, then save it again over the original? Is there any easier way to edit a saved component?
