With SketchUp Pro, you can add intelligent attributes, relationships and behaviors to any component.
Teach your components to animate, scale and replicate like real-world objects.
You can assign intelligent behaviors to any component: Create a fence that adds picket as you scale it longer. Build doors and windows that animate as they open and close. Design a parking lot configurator that helps with site planning. There's no imit to what you can teach Dynamic Components to do.
Make configurable components that take the place of thousands of static ones.
Product manufacturers: Each of your products has dozens, hundreds or even thousands of permutations. How can you represent them all in a single component that your customers can download and use? With configurable Dynamic Components, you can build a single model that does the work of thousands.
Assign custom attributes and metadata to extend your models' usefulness.
In SketchUp Pro, you can assign custom attributes to any group or component in your model. From tracking a part number to dynamically calculating a unit cost based on a model's current configuration, attaching metadata to your models is as simple and straightforward as using a spreadsheet.
What kinds of components can be dynamic?
Absolutely any SketchUp component can be made dynamic.
Can anyone use Dynamic Components?
Anyone with SketchUp can use existing Dynamic Components, but you need SketchUp Pro to create new ones.
Do I have to be a computer programmer to create Dynamic Components?
Absolutely not. As long as you have SketchUp Pro and have a basic familiarity with using formulas in spreadsheets, you can create your own Dynamic Components.
