DNA in Sketchup: A Glimmer of Success?

Here’s the first time that I’ve been able to connect two base pairs in the DNA spiral for my modeling molecules project. My method is quite complicated and I’ve had to resort to all kinds of tricks utilizing layers to pull it off, and I’m far from done. I really sense that if it’s this complicated, I must be doing it wrong.

You know what would be cool? If I could just reach into the screen and twist molecules, like they did in the VR lab in Jurassic Park.

Here’s what I have to do instead, with all layers exposed:

Like I said, it seems way too complicated. But it seems to be working, which is a point in its favor.
