Flowify is not working it says 'INPUT ERROR: Not enough Input'

One possible method:
With Section > Create Group from Slice, you would get the 2D model which you can then simplify (Fredo Curvizard). Create the faces and with PushPull you get the low-poly 3D model.

something like this

ntg-02

Normally you use the 3D warehouse model only for shape and size, and you remodel it yourself, you don’t import it directly into your project.

I am such a novice to SketchUp I dont know if thats achievable for me!

I simplified that railing model and then Flowify

ntg-03

Then learn! You also can create that model easily, using Line and Arc tools.

3D model (just as an idea):
Spiral staircase on own2.skp (6.6 MB)

Thank you so much! I am trying to learn! Just tried to use flowify on a new stair rail I made to see if I could do it myself with a simpler rail and its still not working! Could you have a look at it?

You’re welcome! It takes time and study.

3D model:

I used CleanUp

I have clean up - downloaded that extension the other day! I have literally spent the last week trying to perfect these extensions! You are literally a life saver! After my deadline I will go back in and perfect the extensions!
