I am highly frustrated. This is yet another variation of a recurrent problem I have with Sketchup: That it will not properly intersect faces and lines.
In the attached SKP file you will see a model that is properly drawn (“Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 20.03.05.png”). I have been very careful that all Z-axis are at 1.5mm so everything should be “in plane”.
I wish to draw in a plane as indicated by the green plan in drawing “Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 20.06.01”
I pull a rectangle at it forms as indicated in “Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 20.04.16”.
The rectangle does not properly intersect with the other drawn edges (which it should do). So I then select everything (Ctrl+A) and perform an “Intersect” with the selected (and/or entire model) to force the intersections.
It works, but only partly. You can see that some faces intersected and some did not by the colorizations in detail “Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 20.06.43”.
I have spent all day drawing and re-drawing to make everything perfect, but it just doesn’t work.
-I have rebuilt the model from scratch.
-I have exploded the group and done everything ungrouped.
-I was careful to only draw on the Untagged layer.
-I set my display to show dimensions to 5 decimal places to ensure that the plane would (should) exactly match and intersect.
My Sketchup version is indicated by Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 20.08.08.
Help would be very greatly appreciated.
