Hi everyone, and thanks in advance for your help!
I’m totally new here and to Sketch Up, so I’m sorry if this question has already been asked and solved, but I can’t find a proper reply.
My point is, I’d need a step-by-step help in casting real-world shadows on my model.
I’ve got the basic idea and procedures, but my shadows don’t come out aligned with the real ones, and I’d like to understand why. (They are always 60 or 70 cm off).
I’ve built a small terrace model, with real measurements and TRIED to geo-locating it, which is where my first issue lies.
I mean, please, try to bear with me.
I’ve got my GPS coordinates using a smartphone placed on the terrace ground, and put them into Sketch Up.
Now, I wonder, when I do this, WHICH part of the model get those coordinates? There’s a way I should tell Sketch Up which part of my model refers to that specific coordinates?
