Tip: Naming Layers

If you use layers in your models, you might consider renaming the layers with a prefix of the model name they are in. For example, I have a shed component I want to use in my house model. My shed model has layers named trim, siding, and roof. You should consider renaming those layers to shed_trim, shed_siding, and shed_roof. The problem is, my house model also has the same layer names. So, the imported shed layers get merged with the house model's layers. The shed siding and the house siding would get merged on one layer called siding. Maybe this is what you want and maybe not. If not, then renaming the shed layers keeps them separate.
