Components with the auto-cut feature turned on will automatically punch a hole in an existing where the door, window, or recessed light intersects the original model. Watch the following video for a brief tutorial on how this feature is used:

As always, if you have any problems with the use of a specific tool or technique, feel free to post your question in the SUPlugins Tips, Tricks, and Tutorials forum.

Here are some of the most frequently asked and answered questions in the Podium Browser FAQ.

A Note about keyword search: Podium Browser's keyword search at this point is very, very general and will search the entire database for any word that has the keyword in it. For example if you search for Wall lights and key in Wall with All categories, you will get hundreds of hits. However, if you combine a keyword search with a category selection, you will be more likely to find relevant results.

For example, if you search: Category - Light Fixture and Keyword - Wall, you will get all the Wall light fixtures that are in the Light Fixture category (at least ones that have been tagged with the word wall).
