Colour by layer pre set – SketchUp

Whats up,
How do I pre-set the colours by default layers?
Once I create new layers, the related colours are similar to one another (they’re all brown / orange). And I’ve to vary them every time I create a brand new layer.
I thought of making a template with many layers with the colours already set. However in reality I don’t desire a template with many layers.
I simply need that every time I create a brand new layer, the default coloration is usable and contrasting.
How do I try this?

A technique is so as to add a bunch of your regular layers to an empty mannequin, identify them and provides them the colours you like. Add any scenes and types you usually use, then save the mannequin as a template.

SketchUp doesn’t have a native possibility record of default colours to make use of when including layers. There could also be some plugins that can try to offer this. Attempt looking the Ruby API class for “layer coloration”.

I’d assume it higher to have an extension that colours layers in line with prefix. For instance when in Colour By Layer mode, a consumer would possibly need all dimension layers some shade of inexperienced. So a plugin (implementing a LayersObserver,) may recolor a layer whose identify begins with “Dim” to this inexperienced.

Thanks, It’s a pleasant concept. I’ll see if I can discover a plugin to get this function.

I just lately used some code:

It’s in all probability greater than I’m asking for :wink:
I’ll check out it.
Thanks on your suggestions.

You need to use Eneroth Extract Layers to seize the layers of a mannequin the place you want the colours and add them into a more recent mannequin.

It’s a pleasant concept. Thanks Julia,

Have you ever discovered a manner to do that?
I would like the identical factor to regulate the layer coloration for the Layers Panel Plugin.
Additionally, I like the thought of marking a number of the layers with totally different colours, so you possibly can simply change the interface to point out some options.

I’ll attempt to write a plugin; please ship me the button you want to have in Skp :smiley:
