I am hopeful that there is a solution for this issue I am having.
I DO understand that this is a big HUGE request and that it may be too much to ask.
After following to a T several dozen instructional videos on YouTube and tutorials on these Sketchup forums, it appears that this very well COULD be too much to ask.
It is a totally unreasonable request, I do realize this. But, can’t hurt to ask.
So, my question is:
Is it possible, in Sketchup to do the following:
Make a circle……….
It is a complex shape, I get it. So I’ll try not to get my hopes up.
While I DO find The Pentagon to be a very interesting building, and I can see quite a lot of value in the design of that building (I understand there to be an outdoor space in the center if so I’d put a greenhouse and a BBQ there)…
While I can appreciate the design of our Nation’s great and noble Pentagon:
I simply wish to draw an actual circle in this particular project which involves actual circles.
I am quite confused by the fact that in the toolbar it shows a clickable button that looks like a circle. I can only assume that the developers of Sketchup used a difference software to draw that actual circle on the “Circle” button?
*I do see that some of the previous responses point out that the circles are divided into segments. While I appreciate that info, I DID notice that the circles are divided into segments (in fact that was the reason I came to the Help Community initially.
So, when someone is asking why circles don’t look like circles, it doesn’t help to in response point out that the circles are not circles.
Also, I have seen it suggested to draw the very large number of circles in my model all over again:
Well, I was sort of hoping for a REASONABLE solution. I realize that computing power is quite limited these days, and my computer only has 32GB of RAM as well as a SSD, but:
Still I am clinging onto the hope that it MAY be possible to make previously drawn pentagons turn into circles. If I have to build a render farm in order to process such massive volumes of data, then well just let me know gotta do whatever it takes.
p.s. I am using Sketchup Pro, but is there like a “SUPER PRO” version which makes circles which look like circles?
p.p.s. I apologize if this request is out of left field. I do realize that I might be the only person on Earth who would like for my circles to look like circles, so I can see why the developers haven’t made circles a priority over the years.
Anyway, hoping for good news.
