I’ve made a Sketchup extension named FitParts for generating cut plans from your drawing. Let’s say you are making a panel box just for example. First you make 6 walls and group every one of them as you go; it is nice and normal to name them, say left, right, .... Second you select these groups. Third you start my extension from Sketchup menu Extensions / FitParts / MakeCutlist. You will choose or type the size of (identical) panels you have and click the Cut button.What you will...

Then it hit me ...
