We received this query from a user:
I see on your website ( http://www.renderplus.com/wp2/wk/Proxy_Components.htm ) that the RPTOOLS plugin for SketchUp has a proxy tool that can create a low-poly version of a high-poly component.
Does it actually create a lowpoly component or does it create a series of bounding boxes as Adam Billyard's "Proxyview" or Fredo6's "Ghostcomp" does?
Is it (RPTOOLS) fit for use in SU2016?
It creates a criss-cross of images, or a write-frame bounding box.
It is executed with a right-click menu pick from a component.
RpTools will work with all versions of SketchUp since SU 8
Right Click on component and select Create LO-POLY Proxy Component
Select desired settings and click OK
Here is the component displayed as a criss-cross proxy object
Right click again to restore the full component
