I am hoping for help with the following problem. IT has to do with Layout generating diagonal color fill-in when I adjust line weights.
I generally use Sketchup for architectural 2D plan site layouts, and here is the problem, and the method I use which presumably generates the problem. The screensaves below come from the basic drawings for a simple townhouse layout
I make the line drawing in SU, create a scene, and save.
I insert this into Layout, select the scene in the SU model pane, check the preserve scale box, select a scale, and select vector instead of raster, select the same scale in the Dimension style pane, then select Explode from the Edit menu, then Ungroup, and Ungroup again. I save the drawing at that point and then fill various areas with color. See attachment “Dalton test colors”.
I then start to change the line weights. Some lines are joined but need different line weights. See attachment “Dalton test colors & line select”, showing a group of connected lines that need to be separated.
I use the split tool to separate the lines, but this does strange things to the color areas, producing triangular areas with the colors removed. See “Dalton test colors & line select & split”.
What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help?
