One of the more common questions I get when talking about SketchUp is the difference between groups and components, and when to use each of them. The answer, at least for me, is fairly simple – I use components any time I’m going to have more than one copy of an object in my model! Groups are great for non-repeating objects that you want to keep from merging with other geometry. Components are linked together so that every “instance” of the component will change whenever one instance changes, making future changes easy!
