Can SketchUp draw lines to specific measurements?


#1

I am brand new to SketchUp. I’m using Windows 10 64 bit and SketchUp Pro 2017. I don’t know what it is, but I know I have a fairly new and good graphics card. SketchUp seems to be working and installed properly.

My question is how to get SketchUp to draw lines to specific measurements. I am trying to draw a simple wooden stool. It would be simple if I could specify the dimensions of the various components. How could I do this?

Yes. You can draw lines to specific lengths. Start drawing the line, let go of the mouse and type the desired distance. Hit Enter and presto!

You should watch the basic SketchUp videos.
