I started by creating a rectangle. Then used the push/pull tool to extrude the rectangle into a cube-like 3D shape. So I now have 6 faces. How do I convert these 6 faces into a solid? Just starting; help appreciated.
Select all of that geometry and make it a group or component. If there are no stray edges, holes in surfaces, or internal faces it should show the component or group as “solid”.
Keep in mind that SketchUp is a surface modeler so there won’t be anything inside the skin of the box.
geometry selected; Entity Info indicated “18 Entities” (must be 12 edges and 6 faces). Don’t know how to “make it a group or component”.
Press G to make a component or right click on it and choose Make Group or Make Component.
Super! Thank you.
Very helpful. thx
Although do be careful about Sketchup terminology. SU is a surface modeller, so a “solid” is actually a series of conjoined surfaces enclosing a void. Just like “lines” are actually edges. Solid in this context just means that it is watertight.
