Multiple Profiles, One Follow Me

I have a confession. I love Follow Me. Don't let Push/Pull know, but I think that Follow Me may be my favorite modification tool in SketchUp. Push/Pull is great and all, but when I have to sweep a molding profile around a room, or round-off the corner of a table, it's clear that Follow Me is my tool of choice.

While Follow Me and I have a great relationship, there are times that things get... tense. For example, if I want to take a bunch of shapes and have them all follow the same path. Follow Me will do it for me, but it does so begrudgingly. I can get all of the shapes to follow the path, but it ends up being more work than I like... A lot of selecting, path picking, then Follow Me, then picking the profile... Then I have to do the whole thing all over again for the next shape. It makes me wish I could just keep it simple. Just me and Follow Me and a single click to get the geometry I need.

Well, for the good of my relationship with Follow Me, I present this Skill Builder. Learn how multiple profiles can follow the same path with a single click. This may be the thing that you need to get closer to Follow Me.

Just don't tell Push/Pull.
