(Using most recent Pro Versions on a new Mac working on the most up today operating systems)
Since yesterday, a model Ive been working on in layout has started to glitch, I have scenes that are all saved, yet in the import to Layout there are hidden elements appearing in them, which are not showing in the scene in Sketchup (I have updated the Layout file in document settings). Ive tried resetting the camera and all sorts but it’s still not resolving.
On top of this Im missing lines in the import? (EG A rectangle is missing one side, unless I double click in the box to show the SU view and it shows up). This has all happened since I last used Layout last week. Ive never had issues with it like this before and I cant seem to work out the solve.
You might see if turning Profiles on and setting them to 1 helps.
Your scene called “Stairs Front ELevation” might show some graphic weirdness because you have two copies of the stairs group stacked one in front of the other.
I notice in LayOut you’ve modified the Camera properties for some of the viewports. You shouldn’t need to do that for any of them. The viewport in the upper left corner of the sheet is using the “STairs OpenBase” scene but you have a scene that could be used directly without modifying the camera.
Are you still using SketchUp 2021 and Mac OSX 10.5?
Looking at your SketchUp model I notice a few things you could improve that would make your workflow easier and more efficient. If you are interested in that stuff I can share it but maybe you are happy the way it is.
I have to ask, is there a reason you’ve chosen to exclude all of the scenes in your model from animation? The parentheses around the scene names indicatess that. In this case, since all of the scenes are excluded, there’s not much point in doing that. It just makes every scene name and tab longer.
I am using the most up to date SU, and the most up to date Mac operating system (my Mac is literally a month old)
I turn off animation in scenes so that when you are checking each scene you dont have to wait for it to travel, it just snaps to it.
I have modified some of the angles in Layout, tbh, this model has been really tricky (its the most complex thing Ive ever had to model) and so when something isn’t correct, Ive just tried to make it work as best I can in order to meet deadlines.
Thank you for the Vector tip, that rectified it completely!
Please update your forum profile. When that information is accurate it helps us help you.
Unticking the box for Include in animation has no effect on scene transitions in the model. That only omits scenes if you are exporting an animation video from SketchUp. Turning off scene transitions in Model Info eliminates the delay between scenes.
A better process would be to modify the camera position for the scene in SketchUp and leave the viewports alone in LayOut.
I’m about to get started with an online student but when we’re finished I’ll come back with some additional stuff.
