I’ve been fighting with Sketchup for 2 hours, having imported a component from the 3D warehouse.
I want to make a selection, and have an inspector pane that tells me about that selection. Most importantly, what the size of that bounding box is. Then it should be easy to just type in what the exact L,W,H should be and those objects be scaled accordingly.
The scale tool is useless. I don’t care about percentages, I want exact measurements. Then you just have some extra UI component that asks for which is the ‘anchor plane / point’.
this tape measure tool and so forth isn’t really helpful because it scales in all directions. Furthermore the tutorial information is out of date, and doesn’t mention you have to un-toggle first so it’s not creating guides.
I really don’t understand how everyone thinks this software is intuitive. It shouldn’t take 2 hours to accomplish a trivial task if something is intuitive. Especially given I’ve even searched for how-to’s and even that doesn’t work.
