SketchUp Skill Builder: Transparent Walls

Don't you just hate it when you design a beautiful room but end up locking yourself out because you need things like walls and ceilings? Make your life easier by using Transparent Materials.

In this Skill Builder, we’ll teach you how to make a room that you can look into, all without messing with Sections, X-Ray, or the Hide command!

Remember, you can see through Transparent Materials, but not click through them. If you need to edit the inside of a closed room, you’ll want to take advantage of the Section tool, or place items on layers that can be toggled on or off. If all you need to do is spin around a model to take a look inside your room, then Transparent Materials is exactly the tool you are looking for!
