I have recently gone back to Sketchup after a period of using Vectorworks. There is a tool in VW that I am really missing… is there a way of doing this in SU?..
‘fill polygon’ - allows you when in ‘top plan’ view, to just click into a space and, as long as the space is closed, it will create a new poly (face) within that area. The space could be bounded by lines, groups, any geometry. It allows you to ‘fill’ what can be quite a complicated shape. In SU I can’t find a quick way of doing this. I have tried to draw around the boundaries of the space to create a new face, but this can take ages - especially as SU snaps to things that are not co-planar - and may not be accurate if arcs are involved. I have also tried copying the whole thing to somewhere else on the workspace - on top of a big face - and then explode all the groups to create new shapes. This has also proved problematic. Any tips or extensions out there?
