When authoring Dynamic Componets, it is important to understand how the component's axes relates to the "Position" attributes (X, Y, and Z) and "Rotation" attributes (RotX, RotY, and RotZ).

This tutorial utilizes features only available in SketchUp Pro 7. (aleanbh, thanks for the wrong-icon catch in scene 6, it's fixed now)
