Changing dimensions of components on my.sketchup


#1

i’ve uploaded a model to my.sketchup and want to change the dimensions of the various components. is there a way to do this without using the scale tool?


#2

Just as in the desktop version of SketchUp, you can use the Move tool.

Exactly what is the change you need to make?

i’m trying to change the dimensions of a drawer bottom, so let’s say change from 8x10 to 12x22.

How is the drawer bottom drawn? Is it just a flat panel or is it beveled on the edges like a traditional drawer? If it’s a flat panel, open the component for editing and use Push/Pull on the edges. If it’s got beveled edges, opoen the component for editing, select the geometry along a side including the edges of the bevel and use the Move tool. None of this is unique to my.SketchUp. The same procedures would apply in the installed version of SketchUp.

ah, i see. for some reason i thought you could just edit the component in question by entering new dimensions somewhere. thanks!

No. As I’ve said, its the same as in regular old SketchUp.
