Hello, I am new to 3D drawing and I got suggested sketchup as a good tool to learn and make simple things. I’m a hobbyist that build 1/35 armored vehicles. I wanted to draw certain parts of a specific vehicle to enhance the level of details on my model. It consist of an antenna base.
So far, I managed to build this with sketchup :
I want to give some thickness to the brackets so I tried the follow me tool… no sucess. The shape goes crazy or doesn’t follow both cylinder path… Because my part is so tiny I am limited to 24 segment circles so my bracket lines from one circle to the other are probably not 100% straight. I tried drawing lines from the base along the circumference of the cylinder, to then make a polygon, but when drawn, if I click on select, I highlight the whole circle instead…
I’m still learning guys and this is mostly a covid side project, but I’d like to become better at this and maybe be able someday to 3d print whatever part I want for my models.
