I have searched the web for my specific question and can’t seem to find the answer, so I am turning to the experts at LJ.
I am trying to make a simple box in Sketchup. I have completed making all the components. I have saved them as components. I have a complete assembled drawing. Now I want to make an assembly view and an exploded view. I read you have make a copy of the model and set it off to the side. I did that
I went to FWW and found these steps to make the separate scenes.
To create a Scene, follow these steps:
After following this process, a scene tab will appear just below the toolbars. No matter where you are in the model, clicking this scene tab will adjust the camera to retrieve the exact previously saved view.
I created the “Assembly” scene using these steps. I then added an “exploded” view scene using the copy. I exploded all the parts and repeated the steps above.
I then clicked on the “assembly” view and it ALSO was exploded!!! It DID NOT RETREIVE THE EXACT PREVIOUSLY SAVED VIEW! Now I have 2 exploded views and no assembly view!!
Can anyone tell me how to make these separate views? It HAS to be something simple that I am just missing.
