Yeah I know we can use solid tools to cut two shapes out from one another. I should have detailed my explanation a lot more.
What I would like is to:
1 - Create a wall assembly from 3 different solids (exterior lining, structure, internal lining) all in one group/component.
2 - Create a window component (dynamic or otherwise) that I can place on the wall assembly and have it automatically cut through all 3 solids that make up that wall without having to explode the window or wall in anyway.
3 - Be able to move the window around the wall surface and have it retain its cut information.
I figured that the easiest way for this to work would be a void cut object similar to the one in Revit that we could create inside a component and have it automatically cut any other component it intersects with.
As far as I know this type of automatic functionality isn’t yet possible in Sketchup. We have to create void cut components within the wall components etc which makes moving windows, or using wall components more difficult.
But if I have missed a workflow for this I would love to be wrong!
