This is my first time trying to use SketchUp and I spent 4 hours making a very simple drawing that I could have done on paper in under a minute. I can’t believe that everyone finds it this impossible to use so I must be doing something horribly wrong.
I want to make a scale drawing for a woodworking project. After drawing each piece of wood it is almost impossible to get them attached to each other. It looks lined up until you rotate the drawing, then you realize that there is a gap.
I watched some tutorials and discovered that turning everything into a component allows them to glue together, but sometimes it works and other times the component randomly flips into various orientations when I get it close to where I want it, so I can only glue it sticking up.
This looks like it should be a great tool, I think I’m just missing something very important about how to use it.
