Replace Multiple Components AT ONCE

Got an idea to improve SketchUp?

Replace Multiple Components AT ONCE

Postby george91 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:07 am

Hello!

Is there any plugin for Sketchup that replaces multiple components at once, with corresponding new component?

For example:
I have a 2 components: a Sphere and a Cube. I want to replace this two components at once. I want to replace the component Sphere with the component Ball (this component is a model of a ball saved in a different sketchup file) and the component Cube with the component Player (this component is a model of a football player saved in a different sketchup file).

I know that I can do this kind of replacement by right clicking one component and using "Replace...", but as far as I know, this can be used only for one component at a time.
So, I need a solution to replace multiple different components with their correspondent, at once.

Does anybody know a way I can do that?

Thanks!

In the components window, right click on the component to be replaced (sphere), choose "Select Instances". Find the component you want to replace it with in the components window (ball), right-click and choose "Replace Selected" and it will replace them all at once.

Is that what you meant? If you mean a plugin that would let you replace all the spheres with balls and all the cubes with players at the same time, that would be more complicated than doing it the manual way with the built in tools in SketchUp.

I know the method with the components window but I meant the second thing you said. I was wondering if there is any plugin or method that can replace all the cubes with players and all the spheres with balls both at the same time.

But thanks for your answer!
