New to sketchup and thought I understood drawing objects that followed the global axes stating with 0,0,0 as a reference but clearly don’t.
I’ve created side panels for a shelf and some of them I can create dados very easily but there are others that upon close inspection are slightly askew somehow. I create a rectangle on a face and when I push it in, the action leaves a sliver on the outside edges. I zoomed in and can see that the push is not receding into the surface parallel to the sides.
Can this be fixed or should I just start redrawing it?
Is it possible to select the item and “show” its axes with respect to the global axes?
Is it possible to “realign” the object so as to align it with the 0,0,0 axes?
Is it possible to look at the entire project’s axes in order to determine if it is aligned with the world?
Is doing something like this a common rookie error?
If so, how to avoid doing this again or what can I monitor as I draw things to make sure that I am drawing properly?
Might I be doing something wrong when I am creating the component?
I thought I was on the axis when the rectangle tool turned red or green or when it said something like…“on red axis”.
