Hi all, I’ve been using sketchup for a while and love it. Always have.
I tend to draw in 3D and sketch out ideas for woodwork projects - now I’d like to get some help in taking those drawings to the next phase - production drawings or part drawings.
at the moment I draw components, label them then using cut and paste I build them into an assembly - i.e my next project is a garden gate, so I’ve made sides, brace bars and slats that will be going across.
What i’d like to be able to do, is show dimensions on a part. Whenever I use the dimension tool the scale goes out so it’s not very visible once printed.
I’d like to be able to show a couple of views on my 3D model to remind me of construction, then create detail part drawings from that construction fully dimensioned. This will then give me a drawing pack for future reference.
any help would be great.
