Make all lines on the same plane

modeling

#1

I am trying to fix a model I downloaded. The problem is that all the line are not on the same plane.
Is there a way to make that happen in SU?

I opened your file in SketchUp Pro. Then I

  • selected the top view
  • switched the display style to wireframe
  • switched to parallel projection
  • exported the 2D view as a DWG file
  • imported the DWG back into a new SketchUp file

Another possibility would be a draping (sandbox tools) to a face under your geometry, but there are some problems with your edges that should be resolved before you will be able to get separated faces.
