SketchUp: Multiple Copy Technique

Many times, when using SketchUp, we want to copy multiple parts or components at once. Today I have a technique to answer this question for you.

For example, there is one chair, already made into a component, but needs to copy 5 more, a total of 6, follow this step.

1 Select the component you want to copy first, here is the chair as shown in the picture.

2 Select the Move tool and press the Ctrl key on the keyboard means copying. When moving the mouse to the right, there will be One more chair as shown above.

3 Then type 5* in the square. as shown, then press Enter.

There will be 5 more selected chairs as needed. From the example, let’s try to follow with the custom component and enter the amount you want and don’t forget the * sign too.

AutoCAD: Find point’s coordinates with ID command

To know the coordinates (Co-Ordinate) of a point (point) on Shape 2D or Form 3D, use the command ID (Command:ID).

The steps for using the command are as follows:
For example, there is a 2D Rectangle shape as shown in the figure. I want to know the coordinates of the lower left corner. how much Type the ID command into the command prompt.

After Enter to execute the command select the desired point for accuracy use OSNAP (e.g., Endpoint). When you click to select a point, ACAD will display the X, Y, Z coordinates immediately as shown.

In the case of a 2D shape, the Z coordinate value = 0 because there is no height value. If it is a 3D form, it will use the same command and ACAD will display the required X,Y,Z coordinates.
