So basically, my company purchased Sketchup for me to learn and utilize to develop some models. For this reason I am unable to share images or files of what i’m working on. I’ll do my best to describe the trouble i’m having, i’m sure it’s just that I lack more experience with the software.
I’ve build a floor to spec, which is it’s own layer. I’ve built a room to sit on a small portion of that floor (also to spec), which is on it’s own layer. Within the “room layer” i’ve pasted some furniture from 3d warehouse. However, one piece of furniture pasted to it’s on unique layer. I’ve changed it’s entity info to attach it to the layer I want, but it appears it’s only “linked” as I cannot delete the initial layer it was pasted to without losing it altogether. This is my problem across the board. Essentially I want the entire room and all subsequent furniture in it to be a component or group or whatever it needs to be, so that I can have identical duplicates repeated across the floor (each room being their own layer (and uniquely visible).
I’m sure i’ve missed some very basic concept of components and/or groups that is causing my issue, but basically I need each room to be visible, individually, in a scene for later batch rendering.
I’ve looked around and have been unable to find an answer or similar end result to what i’m looking for.
Any advice is so much appreciated.
