Explodes model and groups all entities by layer or material

GroupBy allows you, in a single step, to explode the entire model and regroup all geometry by either layer or material.  Features single-step undo.

This plugin was developed to assist in preparing models for export to other software for rendering, but you may find other uses for it as well.


Nice Informaiton about  material and very nice feature  

Hello, this program interests me a lot to perform analysis for my graduation project in Architecture, but for some reason once under the program, nothing happens; does not open the plug in .. I do not know if there is an extra step to install it in sketchup .. If anyone knows anything about it, I appreciate your help.

generally plugins that work in SU 2014 / SU 2015 will also work in SU 2016.

Excellent plug-in! Would be great "in selection or all in model" option. Thanks!

Smustard plugins add command features to simplify repetitive or difficult modeling management tasks - just ask the thousands of users in over 80 countries across all 6 continents! Smustard began in 2006 with the intent of providing quality plugins to the SketchUp community and to help spur development of the SketchUp Ruby API. Smustard continues that effort through the work of the Smustard Team and the guest authors that post their plugins and help contribute to the SketchUp Ruby community. In case you're wondering, the name "Smustard" is a play on words related to our beloved SketchUp. If you remove the letter "S" from both words, you get "mustard" and "ketchup": popular condiments in American culture. Incidentally, the "Sm" sound is pronounced like that in "Smith" rather than "S-mith".
