Gap in Follow Me Curved Wall

Hi all,

I am hoping someone can help me!
I am fairly new to Sketchup (started learning about a year ago)
I am trying to create a curved wall and when I use the follow me tool, a gap appears on both of the wall faces.

I took the line to be followed from a CAD drawing and the curve was created using a circle so I don’t know why there would be an irregularity in the circle.

I have tried scaling everything by 10 and 100 but the gap still appears

I need the wall to be a solid group so I can place the door spaces but these gaps are preventing that.

I have attached a model of the wall here Curved Wall Issue.skp (362.3 KB)

An help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

It looks to me as if there’s a small jog in the path that caused this. Can you share the model before you ran Follow Me?

Hi Dave,

Thank you for coming back so quickly!
I have pulled out the line I was basing Follow Me on

Thanks for that. And yes, there is a jog in the path. Turning off Profiles makes it easier to see.

After removing that jog there’s no gap when Follow Me completes.

Ah brilliant, thank you so much for your help! I’d been trying to figure it out for 2 days!

Much appreciated!


Happy that helped.

You said in your first post that you got the “line” from a CAD file. It’s not unusual to find bad geometry of this sort in CAD files. Generally the best process is to use the imported CAD file as a guide but redraw the linework using SketchUp’s drawing tools. A flaw like that tiny jog is not going to be a problem in a 2D CAD file but as you can see, it has an impact when you go 3D.

Oh that’s great to know! I’ll be more careful the next time I import from a CAD file then :slightly_smiling_face:
