I am trying to make a ramp connecting to an outside stairs and the ground level outside the house. I thought it would be as simple as marking the short-end next to the stairs and move it up along the blue axis - but it is impossible to drag it upwards. I have tried to only mark short-end, mark short-end plus long edges to the end of the ramp, mark short-end and the surface - but I am stuck - no idea how to proceed… anyone skilled with tip on what I should do?! Please…
Can you share the file?
Have you tried to to rotate instead of pull?
Use Alt + Move tool for Autofolding (like drag upwards geometry) - https://help.sketchup.com/en/sketchup/stretching-geometry
Wow - so nicely illustrated - thank you mihai.s -where do I find the clever “ramp tool” that you use in the second example?
Thank you I made it… even if the shadow looks a bit weird on the first sloping part…
Thank you did not know about this feature - -I have already “erased” it by using shift+ erase tool - how can I know make the line visibile again and smooth it?!
View > Hidden Geometry
Of course… thank you
If that ramp is for accessibility, it is way too steep, and the top landing is too small for turning a wheelchair.
You are probably right - thank you. This is just a first sketch for a customer who is not at all considering ramp. I just wanted to show where it could be done - maybe it should have been correct from start - but not even sure they want one…
