Unblock .skp (3D Warehouse) symbols

Recommended Posts

I am seeking to unblock a symbol downloaded as .skp.

I import as a fixture, interior.

Select in library and place in plan.

Shift select, and then click "Make Architectural Block"

Click to Explode the architectural block is now available, but doing so has no effect.

I want to remove some items from a group. The broom for example.

How can I accomplish this?

Remove surfaces tool is effective, but is very time consuming when surfaces are small and numerous.

Am I correctly using the Explode block tool?

Is this a bug?

No. You can't explode things that are created outside of Chief.

I'm trying to set up a workshop to cover how to do this exact type of thing more effectively in Chief....

 

 

In this example, I was able to isolate your broom in less than 30 seconds.  A couple more minutes and I made it look a lot more like an actual broom.  Just a quick and rough example of what's possible...

It might be worth checking out the thread above and adding your name to the list.
