I’m a beginner with SketchUp but I need help really quickly because I have little time to finish my project.
I’ve created this section of a box (I’ll attach it). I need it to be a solid group because I want to cut a hole in the middle with Solid Tools. Anyway, even after having run Solid Inspector2 which doesn’t give me problems I still get the "shape is not a solid or it is “locked” error.
I’ll give you some insight in my procedure, I’m sure it is a little nooby and that’s not how it should be done: I’ve modelled the outer part using rectangles and the RoundCorner plug-in. Then, the only way to give it thickness was to copy the model, scale it down and cut the unneeded parts. Then, I proceeded to connect the two portions together with the “Lines tool”. I’m sure this procedure is not correct, I hope that you can help me asap.
EDIT: the aim is for it to be 3d-printed.
