Thank you. Could not open that in sketchup pro 2019. Had to open it on sketchup web version. In your file I am able to paint, but not able to push/pull which is the only way to modify this with all the curves.
I went back to my original 2019 file that I uploaded here and fixed the error you highlighted. It did not fix anything for me. What else did you find that enabled you to at least paint the bracket? I did not expect the fix to do anything for me actually since prior to rotating one of the two drawings shown and joining them I was having the same issue with two separate parts. The misalignment you pointed out was in joining them, but both planes on their own appear to be intact and drawn in the same plane.
It can help to start something like this with a pre-drawn surface bigger than your item and then draw your lines onto that before removing outer parts you no longer need. That keeps lines coplanar.
Could you explain that a little more? Or point me to a tutorial? The actual jpegs that you see on the drawing were almost 30ft long. I hadn’t realized that until it was necessary to resize my finished bracket down to 10 inches.
…before removing outer parts you no longer need. That keeps lines coplanar.
This part especially. I can’t picture what you mean.
The method you describe would necessarily include lines that would require removal after drawing? How so?
Ah wait a sec. You mean draw a large square “platform” that sketchup autofills, and then draw my lines onto it? Doesn’t the blue line bordered jpeg that shows up when importing it accomplish the same thing? If not, how do i make the jpeg and the autofilled square “platform” coplanar?
