Adjust Curvature in Skp Make?


#1

I can’t figure out how to adjust curves or set points in Sketchup Make. Perhaps in not possible in Make? It tells me how in the link I’ve attached but I can’t get the program to do it. Can one only do this in the Pro version?

Ultimately I’d like to create wavy lines that I can adjust once drawn. I don’t care for the method of drawing multiple arcs. Using a bezier curve is too limiting as well.

I’m drawing things to export as a dwg file so I can cut things out on a cnc machine. The lines need to be very smooth as I’m building furniture. So I still need to be able to adjust the number of segments. It’d be nice to add points as well.

Here’s the link to the explanation:

I’d love it if someone could clue me in.

Cheers

Your link is to a tool in LayOut - a companion program that comes with SU Pro.

Get the plugin called BezierSpline.

Thank you for clarifying that. I tried looking it up in the extension warehouse and I got this: “Well, that’s a bummer, your search for “BezierSpline” did not return any results.” Other ideas?

Plugins are hosted all over the place. It’s at SketchUcation. Google it for a direct link.

You’ll need to join SketchUcation, it’s free. The download (and another required plugin) is an RBZ file. Install those from inside SU, through Window > Preferences > Extensions. Click the Install Extension button.

Thank you! It worked! The Uniform B Spline tool within that plugin is EXACTLY the tool I was looking for.

Cheers!

You should have a look at Fredo6s Curvizard plugin too.
