I’m somewhat new to sketchup, I’m trying to design a wooden gate, similar to a barn door with a 45º angled ‘brace’ across the front and back. I understand this is very simple, if you’re working with a square object, which mine is not. To make up for the non-square shape I attempted to measure the angle with the protractor from the bottom inner-edge to the top inner guide (measured to the width of my stock) so it would be edge to edge, but it still didn’t line up. I know the angle can’t be exactly 45º due to the object being an odd size.
I’ve attached my .skp for reference, and in the attached image you can see what I’m trying to achieve… I just don’t know the proper way to do it.AutoSave_Gate.skp (169.9 KB)
