If I draw a cabinet or a piece of furniture in Sketchup at a particular dimension and want to duplicate that same cabinet with smaller or larger dimensions do I have to redraw that same cabinet again or is there a way to shorten or length it without redrawing it completly?

There is a plug-in called Fredo Scale. The scale tool will scale everything including the width or thickness of pieces. I’m no expert on it, but for the most part I can get it to work. Only having trouble when I have a double door cabinet.

Google search it and hopefully you can find the plug-in. That’s how I found it if I recall.
