    as you know sketchup is a 3D software .the layers are for the CAD profession to create complex models. I am going to start this answer by pointing out that SketchUp is a 2D modeling program, not a CAD program. It's possible that the person who asked this question might have misinterpreted a function called "Layers" which is not available in SketchUp but exists in most other 3D programs. Layers allow you to make changes to your model without having those changes affect anything outside of their respective layers--a feature unique to the editing process and unique from any other sketchup operation such as extrusion, scaling, etc., which will always affect all viewports where they operate.

    A project in Sketchup always has a few associated layers. Think of them as invisible sheets that you can use to cut, move and manipulate the visible geometry. There are two ways you can find out which layers exist for your current project:. 1) Type "show layers" into the Sketchup toolbar and hit Enter (or Ctrl-L on Windows or Cmd-L on Mac). 2) Click "Edit" in the top menu, then hover your mouse so it's over one of those words - such as "Move," "Rotate," etc., and if any related layers appear below, they'll appear as checkboxes next to those words.

    Sketchup is a 3D modeling program that lets you create and edit 3D models. One of the most helpful things about SketchUp is the interface: beautiful and simple to use, it does not require any drawing expertise. You can start with a pre-built geometric shape or object, such as a desk; import something from Google's library; or make your own shape out of vertices (nodes), lines (contours), and faces (polygons). SketchUp gives you four views into your model - Front, Top, Right and Left - which allows for quick visual design. You can move these views around by just dragging them on screen ..

    Sketchup where is layers? SketchUp includes four default layers on which you can place static entities -which are fixed, unchanging items like walls or furniture- and dynamic entities -which are things that can move like doors or windows-. If you're using the basic user interface to start your model both of these sets of options will come with three different standard setups. The default setup for the static layer is "On Ground Level", while the default model for dynamic wall items is "Erase Background". You'll find detailed documentation on how to use these settings in our Help Groups.

    Sketchup where is layers? No worries! Every time you create a line, shape, face or component in SketchUp, it's added to the currently-displayed layer. Layers allow you to organize your model by hiding or displaying content as you need it. Plus, each layer has its own color and opacity settings to help manage the appearance of all those entities that have been added there. Layers can be displayed individually or as a stack-in other words a scene can be made up of many different layers, but only one layer at a time will be shown on screen.
