Neat solution, turning to ‘Standard Top View’ in ‘Parallel’ projection
For those without extentions and not having ‘Drape’ available (SketchUp Web Free) you can turn to ‘Intersect Faces with …’. to get the vertically ‘projected’ crossing. See green circle in image:

(draw a vertical edge from face intersection right up to the upper edge, starting somewhere where you get the red inferensing (intersection))

p.s. you can easily pre-create both triangles in the ‘Standard Front View’ in ‘Parallel’ projection.

Are you suggesting this because you like this functionality in iPad? Do you find it useful? It’s a good thought.

Hi @Gopal,

Thank you for all the work and effort that the team puts into improving SketchUp!
I took this phrase from @Wo3Dan (to whom I also thank), but it conveys the same thing that I wish for you and the team (link).

I use Windows (no iPad), but I thought of drawing those two images after seeing your post and because you constantly add new interesting things to SketchUp (for Web).
And maybe these (ex: Pie Menu) will then be added to SketchUp desktop (maybe even in the form of plugins like Bezier Curve, which will run on many versions).

I consider it very useful (and I use it), being able to streamline the way of working, increase speed and, last but not least, a simplification by using a single shortcut instead of eight or more and of course not having to search for disparate icons on your desktop.

Very simple and clearly explained how it’s working, in under one minute, in this clip (it is set to start exactly at minute 3:40):

Thank you for your interest and have a nice day!

Hi, thanks for the details! The reason I asked about iPad is SketchUp for iPad released a pie menu a couple months ago!

You can read about it here: More control, more options, more tools on iPad — SketchUp

You can see you can customize which tools are in the menu and call them up in the context of working on a model. And it sounds like this is exactly what you’re after in web / desktop.

Let me know what you think of this feature!

Salut, @Gopal!

I will look for some videos on YouTube to see how that Pie Menu works for the iPad.
I hope that the image with all the icons at once is only for the settings, then only the necessary ones will appear depending on the context - draw, edit, etc… I will also read/translate the article to find out the details.

And of course, they will appear soon in the Windows, web/desktop versions (hopefully as a plugin) :wink:

Thank you for giving me this information!
Have a nice day!

Yes, that is just to choose what tools go into the menu. If you scroll down to the third image, you’ll see a quick video of the tool in action. It just takes a second to load the video! The iPad Pie menu consists of 8 tools.

I watched the clip. Thanks!
The Pie Menu and Dark Mode will change/enhance (in good) the way you feel and work in SketchUp (at least for me) once they will be implemented in the Windows desktop/web versions.

If you want to project a texture to a series of objects (see this thread), you have several solutions at hand:

One click solution with native tools - Paint Bucket

For this it is necessary to have basic knowledge about SketchUp (you can acquire them by going through the lessons at learn.sketchup.com)
Knowing what you want to achieve, organize your drawing method in advance:

  • create components or groups with the same origin;
  • one click paint with Paint Bucket

for components

for groups


If you ‘did not know’ / ‘were not paying attention’ / ‘this is how you received the model and the groups/components do not have the same origin’, you have several solutions available:

Two click solution #1

    1. align the origin of the groups/components with Eneroth Line Up Axes extension
    1. paint the objects with Paint Bucket

Two click solution #2

    1. paint the objects with Paint Bucket
    1. use V-Ray > Tri-Planar Projection

There are also other solutions that involve the use of other extensions.
