It is amazing we can do the assembling and disassembling animation in Sketchup. As to share this simple technique as below:-
1. Visibility control. Through putting each components/groups in different layers, you manipulate the visibility components/groups on multiple pages then slideshow them.
2. Face me components.
"You can add "face me" property to an existing component. Just right click and select "Entity Info", there, on the "Definition" tab, you can find the "Always face the camera" option. You may need to reveal it by pressing the upper-right arrow in the Edit Info dialog if it is in the hidden mode. "[1] to find out more...
