I have been trying to trace and create a venue for my sound system design, but I am unsure why my tracing is not working and i am having tough time getting the venue walls up. Any pros here have advice please help.
I am 3 days old and i have been at that project for 7hrs in total.
No need to be upset with yourself. Take the time to learn how to use SketchUp. That will help you avoid frustration.
I’ve given you the primary advice already. When you get back to working on this project I expect you’ll want to first deal with the scale of the imported .dxf file. As it is your venue appears to be rather small. At that size it probably doesn’t need and audio system at all.
SketchUp doesn’t use layers. It has tags for controlling the visibility of components and groups in the model. The use of components, groups, and tags are fundamental things to learn before you get stuck into a complex model like yours is headed to become. Again, start with the link I already provided.
That’s an old video. Tags replaced layers a few years ago. In the video it is clear that this fellow is using them incorrectly. In his older version Layer 0 should ALWAYS remain active and all geometry (edges and faces ) should keep Layer 0 assigned to them. In the current version Untagged should ALWAYS remain active. ALL edges and faces should be created and remain untagged. Only objects (components and groups) should receive tags.
