Hi! I’m new to Sketchup. I’m trying to figure out the best way to accurately draw the inner walls of rooms that are more or less rectangles, but with irregular measurements. I am an interior designer, so I am not trying to make super precise architectural plans—just floor plans/furniture placement plans that are accurate enough to ensure that the furnishings and fixtures I’m including fit correctly.
A friend recommended I measure the length from one corner of the room to the opposite far corner and use that as the basis for my plan. However, if I do this, how do know exactly where to place the end of my tape measure guide line? For example, let’s say corner-to-far-corner measures 5m—5m at what point on the axis?
I have attached a screenshot of a furniture placement plan I’m working on for one of the irregularly-shaped rooms for reference.
