I’m drawing 2 lines that represent bullet trajectories. Hypothetically 2 bullets were shot into 2 adjacent walls of a building. I’ve created the building and created 2 lines that represent the bullet trajectories (these lines are in 3D as they both have vertical and horizontal angles). Both lines come within a few inches of each other at one point in the middle of the room, representing the hypothetical shooters location at time of firing the bullets. I’m having a hard time figuring out how to best pick a point that represents the CLOSEST point of intersection. I need to keep this as simple as possible as this will be used for a high school class on forensics. Google SketchUp is a tool used in the class to build a model of the crime scene but this is NOT an in-depth CAD class.
The simplest way I can see right now is just to click on the floor and right click and go to “Align View” and then draw a little line that “appears” to go through the apparent intersection of the 2 lines and that gets me, in this case, within an inch and 1/2, which might be reasonable for this example.
I’ll try to upload the file herein.trajectories1.skp (118.7 KB)
How can I do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!
