Creating a wall around an object


Im struggling to create a wall around these windows. Any help?

Share the SketchUp file so we can see what you are working with.

I don’t understand well what are you trying to do only by watching the image.

The file is too big to upload
I want to continue the wall with those three hexagonal windows cut out

Upload it to DropBox and share the link.

Basically make a linear array with Move/Copy as you’ve started to do in your screenshot. Then make a copy of the array to the right and shift it up to create the staggered arrangement. After you’ve got the two columns of tiles you can use Move/Copy again to copy those over as many times as needed.

Something to keep in mind, as this is a user forum not a company help desk, people tend to get more involved if you actually respond to the answers offered in your threads.

Sorry, I didnt explain that well. I just need a wall to be placed with cut-outs for those 3 hexagonal windows.

Looks like a couple of other folks have downloaded your file. I expect they’ll come back with a solution. I would just model the entire wall and make it a solid group or component. Then use the Trim tool to cut the openings to match the windows.

I just removed the internal walls and made the facade the main wall. Seems to look better. Still not finished but you get the idea of what im going for.

Thanks for the help
