Hi SketchUp community!
let me start by saying that I’m brand new to the software, working on my first project within it, a custom table I’m trying to build in my workshop. I have a 3 dimensional shape created, a rectangle representing a piece of plywood that’s 8 feet long, 3.6 feet wide, and 5/8" deep. What I need is to cut a 28.8" x 19" rectangular hole directly in the center of this shape. Intuitively, I thought it would be easy enough to make another rectangle on the shape itself using the shape tool, and then use the push/pull tool to remove the hole.
Unfortunately I have not been able to figure out how to make sure this shape is directly in the center of the larger rectangle. I can try and eyeball it, but that’s not going to work for me, since the purpose of this sketch is to give myself accurate measurements for cutting.
How should I go about achieving this goal? I can take some screenshots if that helps?
