An oldie but I’m sure this used to work flawlessly. I’m creating some kee clamp style work and have discovered something whilst creating the models which include 90 degree bends. I am getting a bowtie style missing face(s) occuring on the tight inner bend when using the ‘follow me’ tool and cant seem to find a way of making SketchUP draw these in automatically. I am able to rework them but it just seems there is a flaw in the math or just the way im going about it.
Create an arc (origin to any distance) drag until 1/4 circle (any axis), add small extension lines to the ends of the arcs running off in the direction of that axis…
Create circle on one end of the arc
Select the path (triple click)
Select Follow me tool and click on face of circle.
Works great until you looks closely at the tightest turn (see picture) Sketchup does not create faces there, investigating inside the model you can see why it hasnt, because it seems to have overshot and created a diagonal cross inside the model. Leaving unhealed faces on the outside.
