SketchUp-How to place SKP lamp onto HD table top


Recommended Posts

Can I model an item like a table lamp in SU, then import it to HD 2020 and place it directly onto a table top?


I have no issue importing (drag/drop) SKP, but it seems to only place it onto the floor in HD. I can manipulate the lamp and get it on the table but it seems awkward. I was hoping I'm overlooking some simple parameter.


If I save the SU item to my User Catalog it still only get placed on the floor.


In a similar way, can I model items in SU, and have them directly attached to a wall? Like wall mirrors from the Wayfair catalog.

Chief has the ability to create and modify symbols.


Note the Special Placement options.




You can create something in another program like SketchUp, import into Chief, then convert to a native symbol setting these options.
