How to draw an oval?

How do I draw an oval shape?

Quickest way is to draw a circle then use the scale tool to elongate or flatten it as desired.


Depending on what you mean by ‘oval’, there are several ways…

There are several plugins to draw ellipses -
do a search at the EWH or SketchUp Plugins | PluginStore | SketchUcation
e.g. SketchUp Plugins | PluginStore | SketchUcation

You can also draw a rectangle, then add 1/2 circle arcs on the ends and erase the internal edges - that’s actually perhaps called a ‘lozenge’ or ‘slot’…

Otherwise draw a circle, select it and use Scale - stretch it out into an ellipse/oval-like shape…

If you mean a true ‘egg’ shape, then that’s more complex - it is Easter ???
