Sketchup Icon Viewer

Postby Matte » Sat Sep 25, 2021 12:41 am

Good Day,
Over the years I have created an extensive Library of things to cut and paste into my models. It's large enough to the point to where I am having problems picking the "right" part in a timely manner. For example when I want to add a table light to a scene. Style is very important.... When I “open the folder” that I have all my table lights in… there is “70 or 80” to choose from. The way I input a “Light” now is insert them one by one till I find something suitable. What I would like to know…. Is there some form of an Icon viewer where when I open the folder in windows with many Sketchup items in there… I see what they are without having to open them up one by one till I find something usable.
Thanks Matte

This is only app I know of that has support for .SKP files in Windows Explorer type environment. It also has a robust tagging system to catalogue your files.

I would trial before buying though. It's not for everyone.

Also worth checking out Component Finder.
