Cannot delete outline


#1

Hey there :slight_smile:

I’d like to delete the lines that are marked red.
But when I try to do sop, the surface also gets deleted.
How can I do that?

Thanks a lot!

You can’t delete the lines because the existence of the faces is dependent on them being there. You could hide the edges instead. Use the Eraser tool while holding Shift.

What is it you are trying to model? The way you have your model built is strange. You have a group that looks like this:

And a bunch of loose geometry.

I’m trying to build a 3D-model of a speaker for my planned home-cinema.
As you might already know I’m totally new to sketchup. I tried to repair the broken part, maybe it worked now? (see attachment).Vokal.skp (105.8 KB)

If I understand correctly, the edges you want to hide are inside the group so you need to open the group to edit inside it.

I’m wondering though if you need the group in the first place. Maybe you should just explode it so you have one big mass of geometry. Then you can actually erase the long edges parallel to the outer ones.

Worked by exploding, thanks a lot!
