Spiral-threaded bolt, Part 5: Finishing up

Select and Move the hex head component from my bolt template, joining it to the hex bolt.

You'll notice, though, that not all components are colored alike. Not a problem.

Select all the component that you want to change. Select your Paint Bucket. Pick a color.

SketchUp Color Picker

Click the bucket to re-color your selections.

Further, you can Hide the "seams" between components, i.e. thread sections. Right-click on these lines, and select Hide.

Select Edit from the top menu bar, then Delete Guides, to remove guidelines.

Select View, and unselect Hidden Geometry.
