A similar technique is used for the actual plugs. And to make things easier for the rest of the build I selected the entire structure, use the space key and pressed 'g' for group. The pictures tell the whole story. Well, now, that's pretty much the whole trick, isn't it? You will also use arrays and copying to create dormers. The first thing I did was hit 'c' for the circle tool.
What you are trying to do sounds like it involves Autofold. Now, with the tape tool hotkey 't' , I measured out the distance in between each leg to make sure that the bed was even. The braces I used a series of arcs and lines to create the 2-d graphic I wanted to use as the brace. Unfortunately there is no hotkey for the follow me tool as of Sketchup 13 so I had to click 'tools' at the top of the screen and selected follow me from there.

For the hills I just made some arcs that I colored green. As I use a lot of electricity to charge batteries and power computers I decided that it would be appropriate to add wall sockets to my design.
This reduced my options to an industrial 'cubby. Mission tile and metal standing seam are two of the roof details you can apply with Instant Roof. Give me a little time and I'll try to take you through the process step-by-step. In any event, I was intrigued by your question and played around a bit with Chinese roof shapes. This shelf doesn't employ many complicated build techniques but a lot of simple ones. As I said, I hand-stitched the thing. The latter gives you the ability to choose from a much larger number of roof slopes; that's critical if you're using the script to do serious work.
I then copied it for later use. The trim is pretty simple to make and the pictures should tell you the whole story. The paper holders are just rectangles and arcs with some pushing and pulling- no advanced tools. I will be using Google Trimble Sketchup.

I had previously measured the dimensions of my room to create an accurate floor plan.

The glass I just created a block and then painted it to look like glass. This step entails a lot of rectangles. To stack the books as shown I also used the rotate tool hotkey 'q' to rotate each book slightly on the blue axis.
