Hello, another newcomer to Sketchup world here.
I started learning the app with one quite specific task in mind;
I need to make a layout and a plan for a large brick wall on a apartment house, using several types of bricks.
I got a 3d model of the house from the architects and have created the needed collection of bricks in right size and images of the real bricks as surfaces in Sketchup.
As the brickwall will have mortar seams there will be 1cm gaps naturally around these brick-objects.
What would be the easiest way to make those bricks be a certain distance away from each other?
Is it possible to make those bricks so that there is a invisible or transparent outline or offset around itself which is larger than the actual visible object inside?
There will be a couple of thousand bricks in the realized artpiece so I need a simple way to maintain the gaps.
Thanks and apologies if this kind of topic is already somewhere here. I could not find it.
