Groups, components or unique's doesn't matter! If you lot get close enough to be hugging there will be dubious 'plugin' accusations. As Rich says, there is a front door and a back passage...........

Everyone know that deep down, groups and components are the same.

It's been a love/hate project I've tackled on and off when I had time.

So to finally draw a line under it is great.

Now to see what happens next.... :-P

I like to place section planes at specific locations. So, when I learned that if I hold down CTRL before clicking to locate section plane, it will stick to the face it is near. Then I move the plane using the move tool relative to that face. Duh or D'oh, I don't know, but I like it.

I found a small miss type on The D'oh! Book P61(ver.1.0) P63(ver.1.1)

[20mm, 10mm, 30mm] absolute move -> <20mm, 10mm, 30mm> relative move

By the way I could find Doh about Array Command, we can change operation 'x' to '/' with using 'x1' , or we can change '/' to 'x' with using '/1'.

copy(move + 'alt') some object and type VCB
<1000,,>
x4
10000
x1
/4
20000
/1
<1000, 1000, 1000>
x10
.... we can continue 'x', '/', distance value, relative vertics, absolute vertics.
'x1' or '/1' is important.

Thank you for GREAT BOOK!!

And if you create a component and save it using File>Save as... and then import it, it'll be double wrapped.

And Making a Component creates a new context menu on the Right Click Menu!
"Save As" (+ "Reload" + "Detach")
So more speed than the menu "File Save as" ! ;)

I've just spent *one hour* asking myself why I could not copy-paste from an old SKP file to a new SKP file with a newly imported AutoCAD drawing. I run SketchUp's checkup, GPU-Z, Repaired SketchUp, reinstalled SketchUp... Nothing. Until I remembered these guys send me the AutoCAD drawings in milimeters instead of meters, but I imported it as meters... So the new drawing was gigantic and anything I copy-pasted from the old file was just too tiny to be seen.

Today Penny has Dropped:
XnView is way better BP2 library explorer then a built-in one.
As well I use XnView as Component explorer for years now. Excellent with 2nd disply + drag'n'drop.

You probably missed this, too. If you want to place the same radius on other corners, double click near them.

I don't know if this is a new feature but I was pleasantly surprised to learn about it:

In the 3dWarehouse, select a model, look at the statistics in the panel on the right, if you hover / click on a tag (materials/components) you can import just one of those elements instead of the whole model.
Great feature if you just need 1 material of 1 element from a collection.

At last we have a fastest\easiest tool for ramps/stairs/roads!
Check s4u Stair() in Plugin Store.
Absolutely worth every penny.
