In previous posts I have shown you how to create components in Sketchup that you can save out for reuse in new models. I have also shown you how to take components that are "glued" to walls and unglue them so you can do custom things to them.
Now I am going to show you how to make your own glued components. Sketchup has a neat feature where you can specify components to stick to a surface. For example, if you created a rug in Sketchup, you could specify that it only stick to horizontal surfaces (the floor). Or, if you created a picture frame you could specify that it only stick to vertical surfaces (walls). In this example, I am going to show you how to make an electrical outlet stick to a wall. Not the most exciting example, but you could apply this to all kinds of things, like lights, towel bars, artifacts, or even shelves. Check out the video below to see how it's done.
