First of all, I am new to this forum, so hello to all. I do have a question straight-off. I am trying to create a Fokker EIII model for 3-D printing in 1:144 scale (if you guess is for wargaming - you’ve hit the bulls-eye - this model is for aerial wargaming for WWI)
I am completely new to Google SketchUp, but have however used Inventor and Creo before, so have some experience with 3D modelling. I have the following geometry of the problem:
I have an issue of creating this “side manifold”. The Google SketchUp doesn’t seem to pick up this curved geomtery. The blob above the fuselage was my attempt at cutting away from an existing extracted body (using the usual way of creating another solid, then making it one group, moving it into the object I wish to cut, explode the solid and intersect with selection). But, I have ended up with a very ugly result of faces partially missing, edge of the resultant solid becoming wobbly (physically I mean). Is there a way of somehow filling these contours to make it a solid?
