Sketchup tips

  1. In each version, you can get the default plugins path, by opening the Ruby Console and typing: Sketchup::find_support_file(“Plugins”)
  2. To copy a component on a Mac the  “right hand options” key is the right hand alt key. So select the Move function and press right hand alt and a + appears beside the move marker, then just move and a new copy appears.   THEN … to create several copies inbetween the new and old complete the move and enter 5/ to get 5 equally spaced items.
  3. To mark a face with components that are touching it edit the component, select the face and edit->intersect with model.  There is also an option to copy from the touching part and “past in place”
