I was a professional mechanical designer for 20 years. I used AutoCAD 2D for 10 years and then SolidWorks for another 10. Now, I am trying to learn and use SU for a home project. This is what I have after many hours. The problem I am faced with now is how to create or modify walls that meet a sloping ceiling. I have used the protractor and made a line at the correct angle and then created a surface to sweep with push/pull. Sometimes it works, but I have to do it so much because of the many wall pieces. Isn’t there a better way?
Also, If I create a new shape on an old surface, even though the old surface was grouped, the new one pulls surfaces or lines from the old one and makes them corrupt. I see people on the tutorials making new parts out, away from the model and then bringing them in. Is this why?
Oh, maybe I can’t upload a file yet as I am new to the Forum as well.
