Topic tags/keywords: question sketchup


New to Sketchup, and trying to clean up the model I’ve been working on and I have some questions.

1) Is there a way to visually show all the parts in a model that are a single component?

2) Is there an easy way to tell what parts of an model are NOT components?

3) Is there a way to see all the GROUPS in a project?

4) Are ENTITIES and COMPONENT different?

You see, made shelves in my model. Each shelf had 3 parts to it. Two of the parts where a single components, the 3rd part a separate component. So I have a shelf with two 2×24” parts and one 4×24” part.

Then I grouped the 3 parts together, and move/copied the shelf into 3 separate shelves and a top.

Make sense?

So, I made several layers, and tried moving the separate components into different layers. But when I “hid” a layer that was supposed to hold the shelves, all the shelves didn’t disappear.

Any ideas?
