Hello All. I am new to the forum and new to Sketchup.
I am using SketchUp primarily for drawing interiors for the purpose of interior design (for personal projects, not professionally). I am fairly comfortable with 3D drawing but I am stuck on what should be a simple 2D floor plan.
I would like to use SketchUp to play with various furniture arrangements in a room (all on a flat 2D drawing).
I have a drawing of the floor space and shapes representing furniture pieces (in the analog world this would be the equivalent of move cut out pieces of construction paper around on a sheet of graph paper).
When I overlay a furniture piece on the floor, the two pieces merge. This makes sense being that they exist on the same plan and have now thickness.
Can anyone recommend a better approach? Can the top surface of the floor and the bottom surface of the furniture cutouts be “magnetic” so that they cling together but do not merge?
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.
