I get by with a little help from my friends


#1

Hello all:)

Ok, new part, new lesson and new features to learn in sketchup pro for me. I ran into a fun little challenge tonight while drawing a pressure plate. Instead of giving you a lot of screen shots, i did a screen capture for you:)

This was before i was told about a GIF recorder.

I did try from the lower face as well, and that screwed things up BIG time haha

Thank you all for looking and helping. It means alot

or…Delete the center of your upper ring, make it a group. Then open (donut) group and push pull it down to surface. Then copy that group around 5 times @ 60. MAke the base a group and then use solid tools to cut away parts you don’t need.

What the heck, i tried that way but it dis not like it haha. Wait… i know why it didnt, because i cut out the lines that seperate the tall cylnders from the boss ring… hmmm.

Thanks for showing me this. I am going to try that out and also what the other tip was.

Thanks guys.
