How to make one solid component

advice

#1

Sketchup easy (They say) I find it very difficult to understand the logics.

I have a simple object to replace a broken one. I managed to create the right measures and form. It should be one solid support plate, but no way I can find a way to make it solid. I even can’t fill the top face. Sketchup won’t create a face, no matter how many times I draw the lines. Exhausting…

Can you share the model with us?

Yes, that’s it. Could you tell me which steps to make to achieve this?


#7

If I was drawing this thing, which I’m not, I would do it this way.


Draw the cross section and extrude it to height. Then draw the circles for the pins on the top and bottom and use Push/Pull to extrude them. Make a component and it should be solid with no special tricks or extra steps.

I tried it again and succeeded following your instructions. Thanks a lot!
