Hello everyone. I am trying to make what I believe is a simple ‘cup’ I guess you would call it, I have attached the model.
Oh my I have been at this for hours, and I mean hours, its for 3D printing and when imported into a slicer, its either solid between the two tubes or the plane between the two disappears.
When I try and make the model its just such a massive fight with sketchup, if anyone has any advice on how I should have built this thing then please let me know, because simple push, circles etc is not doing it.
Areas I have struggled with:
- Aligning the various elements to be central
- Creating a base for the larger cup and then cutting a hole into it for the next tube to go against. This seems simple but ■■■■ SU would not have it, either deleting the inside plane of the circle or pulling the walls through sort of thing, rather than a solid.
I tired creating the second tube circle on the base and pulling that but then deleting or pushing the center to then create a hole will not work, it deletes the walls of the large circle
- A constant fight with SU to move objects around, I understand the trick with the arrow keys to force it in one direction, but if its near another object it wont have it.
