I’ve been using Sketchup Make for a while, but I’m certainly no pro. I was hoping I could get some tips on how to get better.
One problem I have with Sketchup is that I frequently need to repeat the same edits on multiple parts of my model. For example, this tetrahedron I’ve designed:
ABCD_dice.skp (457.3 KB)
I want to chop off the tips of each of the four corners, so that they’re not as pointy.
The first change I made by measuring 5mm down each edge, and drawing lines between those points. I then deleted the resulting “mini tetrahedron”. You can see the lines one one corner and the removed portion from another corner. The remaining two corners are untouched.
Is there a way I can modify all four corners without performing these same steps manually four times? I tried to copy/paste the mini tetrahedron onto another corner, but that didn’t work because all of the other corners are at different angles, and I couldn’t figure out how to rotate the shape to match the other corners.
