Replay model history

I am looking for a way to replay the development history of a model. For example:
Scene 1 : Six boards
Scene 2 : Two of the six boards are cut in half
Scene 3 : The boards that are cut in half have holes drilled in them
Scene 4 : etc…

This would be very useful in building tutorials where I want to show the stages of how the model came to be what it is. Is there a plugin that does this?

Otherwise, the only way I can imagine doing it is to create new component for each stage and display that in the scene in its own layer and turn those on and off for each scene.

Short of recording the screen as you model it, you’ve already got the process.

What version of SketchUp are you running? Please complete your profile.
