Save as / clone project


#1

Hello, I would like to explore few combinations of lighting scenarios.
Is there any way to clone my project so I don’t have to start anew everytime?


Some ideas and thoughts

Hello. The scenes are stored in C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\Documents\Shapespark, you can make copies of the scene that you are working on to explore different combinations.

I haven’t tried this, but if you duplicate a project and re-name it will that cause a material link conflict?

From my experience, I can say that this is not a problem. I duplicated a whole scene to have 2 different facade versions. After that, I renamed one of the folders and during the export process, I updated that scene by just writing the new name of the scene folder in the scene name field in the export dialog.

Tim is right, there is no hard link between a SketchUp file and a Shapespark scene, during the update from SketchUp you can enter a different scene name and it will work correctly.
