Developing Components and Dynamic Components

 NOTICE: In observance of the Memorial Day in the U.S., Trimble employees will be home with friends and family on Monday, May 29th. All emails will experience a delayed response during this time.

When you create a component, you turn SketchUp geometry into something special.

A basic component becomes reusable and separate from other geometry.

If you’re a SketchUp Pro user, you can add attributes to create dynamic components. Users can then configure certain aspects of the component, or the component can add steps to staircases or pickets to fences as you scale the dynamic component.

After you try a few basic dynamic components to get a feel for how they work, you find specific examples that walk through the steps to building complex dynamic components and references and examples for the building blocks of dynamic components: attributes, functions, and operators.
