SketchUp Outliner

Post by ntxdave » Thu Jul 13, 2017 6:03 pm

It is standard practice to use components and groups a lot in SketchUp. You can then go to the Outliner and see the object tree for the model. When the object tree is imported to SimLab, the component & group names are lost. I have learned that one of the first things I should do with each model is to go into the object tree and rename everything. It will save a lot of headaches later. ;)

Is it possible to capture the object names from SketchUp both when you use the export option in SketchUp or when you import in Composer?

The Component Name is lost, but it works with Instance Names. Not perfect but it helps sometimes
