SketchUp tip: Mixing and Matching to Show Options

Sometimes it can be useful to show different design options for a project before you are committed. Recently I was working on a model of a cricket table for a client. The original intent was to build the table in pine but then they asked what it would look like with a painted base and hardwood top. In this video I’ll show you how I used copies of the components and tags (layers) to be able to mix and match and show the client the options. Hopefully this gives you some ideas you can apply in your own work.
