In a SketchUp model for a furniture plan I will set up scenes for 3/4 perspective, front 2D, and side 2D, along with exploded view and one or more for parts laid out for 2-view or 3-view for dimensioning. The number of scenes for these depends on the complexity of the project. For complex models I find it easier to break them down into multiple scenes.
In LO I use those scenes for the viewports. The same scene can be used for multiple viewports. In the plan I delivered on Friday I have six scenes and 17 viewports. The only changes I ever make in the Camera section of the SketchUp Model panel is to set the scale and tick or untick Preserve Scale. I do not select from the Standard Views in the SketchUp Model panel as that is taken care of by the scenes. And I never use Last saved SketchUp view as a scene.
I do control which tags are visible in different viewports as needed and now with the control of weight, dash style and edge color in LO, I set those in LO instead of in SU. I also save my models with only my default working style to keep that file size down and then I select the styles for my viewports in LO.
The dashed line from the screw, is a solid line in the SU model (make it simple to align so it passes through the button.) but the tag for that line’s component was set to have a dash style. The bead along the bottom of the apron was set to a thinner lineweight so it doesn’t look like a heavy solid black line.
As I wrote before, I’ve seen plenty of screwed up files from others because they didn’t use scenes in SketchUp or didn’t leave their viewports connected to scenes. I never have those problems in my files, though.
If you were doing a quick one-off document, you can get away with being sloppy in your work but if you need to go back to the SketchUp model to make edits, you can end up creating more work than you might think you were saving by not creating the scenes in SketchUp.
