I used to never use components, just groups, but based on the forum and what I’ve read I should have been.
80% of what I’m making in SU is kitchen/bathroom cabinet design. Prior I’d make a group out of the back panel, sides, tops, toe kicks, and then nest those groups into one as the carcass. I would then make a door group and drawer group.
Now I do something similar but with nested components, even on 5pc doors/drawers … each stile and rail is a component, then I nest those components into one.
There is a lot of clicking on the “make unique” button.
Where I run into trouble is if I have to make a change to one of the nested components. When I click into a component and isolate one of the sub components sometimes I can’t click “make unique” for some reason and I’m looking at all the similar components on the model at once.
Am I using components wrong? 99% of the time I don’t need or want to batch edit geometry, where I know components come in handy.
Should I go back to nested groups for my purposes?
