I'd be happy if you donate a cookie (or a beer) if you find my plugins useful.


when you drag a marked segment, for example, an alter field, from the Part Library into the plan territory, the segment and its related name segment are added to the outline zone as an outline gathering. Snap once on a marked segment to choose the entire gathering. Snap a moment time to choose one of the part segments in the gathering. Squeezing and holding the Alt key while choosing a marked part chooses the entire gathering. Read continuation at

How about Components to Groups? This would be extremely helpful when importing Revit models. Revit elements always come in as components which isn't always desirable especially if they're all unique. Thanks!

It would be very useful if groups sharing the same definition kept sharing the same definiton as components.

each group becomes a distinct component; you get as many components you had groups before using the plugin; so if the purpose was to create a single component, there are some additional work to be done:
> isolate all the unique components recently created on a scene
> select them
> replace them all by one of them using the native components windows of sketchup

I'm looking for a plugin to convert "Layers to Groups" or "Layers to Components" (bulk).
Does this exist?
Thanks in advance :)

SO if I select multiple the same looking groups and convert them will they each be a single unique component or clones?

That is what I'm talking about -- many thanks!
