It depends on what you have in mind. There are several ways of doing it.

Thanks magic man or woman. It goes very fast but understood a lot, scale, miror etc. Have to study!
Can this be done in su make 2016? You are using supro? Do I have to download curviloft?

The follow me method is simple and can be done without any plugin. You can connect those shapes with the line tool if you want.
The other method it requires you to install that plugin. It is not hard to install it but you have to register to sketchucation- it’s free.
Yes you can do it with Sketchup Make.

You’re welcome!
