Mitered joint, how to make in Sketchup Make


I wonder if there is an easy way to make a mitered joint (I am a woodworker) in the enclosed piece of wood (get rid of the piece with an angle of 45 degree at the end of the board, see the line on top). In the pro version there is possibility to subtract solids but in Make it is quite a process.

There are a couple of ways to do it and you don’t need Solid Tools at all.

One quick way based on what you’ve got draw is to use Push/Pull. Hit Ctrl (Option on the Mac) before pushing the triangle down to the bottom.

Hit Spacebar to switch to the Select tool, triple click on the geometry to select it all, right click and choose Intersect Faces>With Selection.

Then erase the waste and correct the face orientation on the end.

You can speed up the erasure process by first extending the molding beyond the miter a bit more.

Then Push/Pull with Ctrl. Drag a right to left selection box around the end to select the waste beyond the miter.

Hit Delete, erase any remaining unneeded edges and correct the face orientation.


Here’s another way.


GREAT! Thanks a lot !!!
