Would like to dupicate 33 similair Circles with same properties



I am a newbie and need assistance.
Situation: I converted construction drawing, from pdf to jpg and imported as image into SketchUp Pro 2017
Request: How can I select all; update all to 8” radius, length 40’6” and define them as Circles?
See attachment for more details and thank you!

You cannot select circles directly from your imported jpg image. You will need to draw a new circle over your image that is an entity in sketchup. You can specify the number of sides in a circle when you make it or anytime later thru the entity info window as long as the circle has not been exploded or disturbed by other geometry. I think you could benefit from exploring the use of components in sketchup. If you make one piling a component and then distribute copies of that component then editing one of them will edit all of them simultaneously. Explore making a component unique via right click to create a second set of longer pilings. You can distribute copies of components with the move tool and the option key.


Here’s a quick demo of what @endlessfix is describing.




Thank you Box,
If I may ask - what tool do you use to create this nice tutorial?
This would aid me with my How-to-do-it or later the ability to insert into a PowerPoint slide for future presentations.
