Automatic faces

Hello, I’m on Sketchup Shop, and I would like to know if there is any way of turning off the option that automatically creates surfaces?
Thank-you in advance!

To my knowledge, this isn’t possible. Automatic face creation is what makes SketchUp such a great modeling tool :slight_smile: You would have to click on the resulting face and delete it to get the desired result. I can think of a couple of reasons you may want this. May I ask why?

I’m wanting to make an Eiffel tower (very very very simple), just with “sticks” though; so I don’t want any faces.

The problem is that it will be BIG, and I don’t really feel like spending hours selecting and deleting faces…

You could always use wireframe mode if all you want are the edges.

Good idea, I didn’t think about that!
