Hi Scetcher Uppers.
I’m very new at SketchUp and am trying to learn the best/fastest workflows for things. I’m designing a temporary crane for a deck that needs to reach to the center of an 8’ hot tub that’ll need to clear a lower deck that’s offset 40" outside of the upper deck upon which I am constructing the temporary crane. Bottom line is, I need to make sure that the lift point of the crane is 8’ / 2 + 40" beyond the edge of the deck I’ve already drawn. Can anyone tell me what the syntax is to use an expression like that as input the same way you would in Rhino, Fusion360 or any spreadsheet application? I haven’t been able to figure out how to do this in my other Google searches and I’d be floored if it wasn’t available somehow. Can anyone tell me what I’m missing or what the best/fastest workflow is?
Thanks so much in advance!
