Description

In this SketchUp tutorial we'll learn how to create Dynamic Components. We'll begin with a brief discussion on the scope of our design problem as well as what dynamic components are and how they can benefit our 3D modeling library. Once we have an understanding of the benefits of creating and working with Dynamic Components, we'll begin creating all the sub-components of our shelving system. We'll learn how to create sub-components and also assign predefined and custom attributes to each piece of our shelving system. Doing this will allow us to create an intelligent, flexible and reusable component, essentially saving us a ton of time on future projects. By the end of this SketchUp training you'll know how to create components with predefined and custom attributes and parameters. The end result is a component that is flexible and reusable for various projects. Software required: SketchUp .

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there. I'm Pierre Derenoncourt. Today we'll learn how to create dynamic components in SketchUp. We'll begin with a brief discussion on the scope of our design problem, as well as what dynamic components are, and how they can benefit our 3D modeling library. Once we have an understanding of those benefits of creating and working with dynamic components, we'll begin creating all those subcomponents of our shelving system. We'll learn how to create subcomponents and also assign predefined, as well as custom attributes to each piece of our shelving system. Doing this will allow us to create an intelligent, flexible, reusable component, essentially saving us a ton of time in our future projects. So by the end of this course you'll know how to create those components, both predefined and custom attributes. You'll also learn how to work with a few parameters to get a little bit more control over your model. The end result is a component that is flexible and reusable for various projects. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
