Dynamic components and its various applications
Dynamic components are very useful for sketchup users. The sketchup users can produce and employ dynamic components in SketchUp effortlessly.
The users can generate a component out of any geometry made with SketchUp, and it can be applied for any repeatable components similar to doors, windows, machine parts, or anything that the users utilize frequently devoid of making these every time.
The users can edit and import these components into future models. These components can be made initially or downloaded from the SketchUp 3d warehouse. If required these components can be adjusted and resaved. The users can alter multiples of an item by inserting details to it.
The users will be able to download Bonus Packs of components at free of cost from the Sketchup 3d Warehouse for entities akin to trees and foliage, cars, furniture, people (both 2d and 3d), generic buildings and mechanical parts. Besides, one can upload their own components to the Warehouse which other people may apply.
In order to activate the Dynamic Components toolbar select View menu and then Toolbars and click on Dynamic Components. A dynamic component (DC) can react to three kinds of interaction. As for instance Smart scaling – a dynamic window will be broaden while scaling it, but the thickness for frame will be unchanged. One more instance - Scales through addition or subtraction of pieces as they become larger or slighter, such as Dynamic stairs. If the scale tool is applied to position the staircase higher, just insert steps rather than stretching the staircase. Another illustration of a dynamic component is one that is placed to react to the Interact tool, to attach doors to a car for example.
The users can generate dynamic component through sketchup Pro version only. The users can download the SketchUp Make version from www.sketchup.com. For producing a dynamic component , the users should make it completely from groups and sub-groups. Right-click on the component > Dynamic Components > Component Attributes. A spreadsheet dialog will be visible that includes 2 columns of attribute and attribute value pairs.
