Newbie, assistance please?

Hello, using Sketchup Pro 2018 and have been doing well for about a week now. I’m having trouble figuring out how to divide the face of a circle into equal divisions. Any help greatly appreciated, thank you.


Let’s start by clarifying what you mean by “equal divisions”. Do you mean pie-cut shaped pieces?

Because SketchUp represents a circle as an inset polygon, the task of splitting it up will depend on whether the number of edges used is compatible with the number of sections you want. For instance, it is awkward to divide a SketchUp circle with 24 sides into 5 equal pieces.

Thank you for responding so quickly!
I would like to divide the circle into 12 pie shaped sections.

With a default 24 sided circle, then, draw radii between the center and every other vertex on the edge. You could also draw one radius and use Rotate copy to copy it around the circle. Select the radius, get the Rotate tool, hit Ctrl to invoke the copy function, Rotate the first copy, hit Enter and then type *11 or x11 and hit Enter again.

Thank you : )

That worked great, just what I was looking for, thank you again!
