I haven't had a chance to try this one out yet, but it sounds like it could become an important plug-in for SketchUp animators.
This module makes it possible to create and animate bones (essentially components) within a skeletal hierarchy. These bones are animated with keyframes that define the local axis and duration of each rotation.
