SketchUp people always face viewer

The man (on layer 0), that one sees when one opens a new SketchUp file always faces the viewer
Question: Is this a viewing function I can assign to other objects? I’d like to place a sign with text next to him that always faces the viewer…

Yes, he is a ‘Face Me’ component. You can set it when creating a component or when editing one.

Just for clarification, on the Create Component and Component edit dialogs this option is labeled “Always face camera”

Thanks Steve. Funny how you can rewrite things in your head.

Ready for some reading?

It is an option when you Make Component… and not just 2D people can have the Always Face Camera flag turned on…

Now I’m confused, I thought there was only one!


Dang it!

I gotta be more conscious of my personal brand…


I guess it is ok because at least the pair of you are hanging around with a box.


We are VERY conscious about the company we keep.
