Angles degrees for my wood project


#1

Hello,
I am a new sketchup user and I need help to find angles in my project.
I have to build a wood cat box and I am trying to find the angles for each piece of wood I have to saw.
I have my sketchup plan and I can send you my file by email.
Hoping to read you soon.

Have you considered using the Protractor tool to measure the angles?

If you want to add angular dimension text, you can use this plugin for example:

I had a look at your model. There is no native angular dimension tool in SketchUp. You can use the Protractor tool to measure the angles and then make a note of them from the Measurements window. The guidelines were placed 90° to the edge using the Protractor too, too, before measuring the angle between them.

I drew in the sector to make it easier to show what I was measuring but it isn’t needed just to get the angle. If I were building this in my shop, I think I’d modify the design. I couldn’t set that bevel accurately on my table saw. It won’t go that far past 45°
