Select n Isolate

This plugin will allow you to isolate selected items by hiding the remaining visible entities in the scene.  These items can be any selectable entity in your model: faces, edges, groups, components, dimensions, etc.

 

TIP: The plugin keeps track of which entities you hide through the plugin and it will only reveal these entities.  This will allow you to use SketchUp's native HIDE feature to hide entities you want to keep hidden.

 

To Isolate:

  1. Select the item/s that you want to isolate.
  2. Right Click/Context click on the selection and select the "Isolate/Reveal" option in the context menu

 

To Reveal:

  • Right Click/Context click on anything in your model and select the "Isolate/Reveal" option in the context menu

 

NOTE: Don't use this plugin while in Edit Component/Group mode.  It will hide everything... even the items you want to isolate.   A possible fix in v2 :-)

NOTE: Big kudos to TIG. This plugin was inspired by his old Isolate Selection script (2005) that works on Windows but not on the Mac.

Version Notes:

This doesent work inside a group or component, it would be great if it does, other wise its a wonderful plugin.

Good in theory but very slow in practice - takes around 30 to 60 seconds to isolate most selections using my 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac Book Pro.

Nice gadget, but too slow.
On my first use it took 55 sec to isolate a feature in a 15 MB file. I will stick wit using hide / show in component edit. (Core i7 2,68GHz)

Great plugin. I would love the ability to assign a keyboard shortcut to this extension.

Nevermind. You can set the shortcut to edit/item/isolate/reveal.

Also, great functionality when editing nested groups and components. Sketchup's component edit hide rest of model feature is great, but does not allow for seeing all the other geometry inside a component/group while editing the nested group/component.

This is a great addition to speed up editing while allowing the desired geometry to remain referenced.

Just installed...gave it a test run! awesome plug-in, so easy!!!

Thank you, awesome plugin !!!

Wow! So simple! So effective! I like the fact that this is a completely different set of objects that can be selected from Sketchup's native "hide/ unhide" commands. This also installed effortlessly! This command needs an Icon badly! A+!
