Marttyn,

You're right, SketchUp often 'chokes' when trying to create extremely small faces.

You can, however, create your LED 100 times bigger than normal, then scale it down to 1%. Depending on the size of the object you're trying to create, you may be able to get away with 10X bigger and 10% scaling. Experimentation will tell...

I'd advise the use of groups/components for such objects. That will make scaling of all pertinent entities much easier (and error-free.)
