I have a sketchup model that includes several components. Only one component needs to be 3d printed.
Solid inspector complains about nested instances and doesn’t check inside instances for issues. So, I’ve been selecting the only component I want to 3d print and then run Solid Inspector. This seems to run on everything at the top level in that component instance.
As I’m designing the part to be 3d printed, I need the other components in the model. Several times, I’ve gotten deeper and deeper into “not really solid!” issues because I was running the Solid Inspector at the wrong level of hierarchy and it therefore didn’t complain.
Is there a “best practice” suggestion for doing this, or do I just need to learn to always be careful about the component I select before running Solid Inspector?
(the other components in the model are NOT solids, and I don’t want to take the time to make them “solid compliant”.
