I’m new to sketchup and still finding myself wondering why the video tutorials never seem to work for me when they plainly work on YouTube. Generally it’s me but I’m really stuck on making a sphere. I’ve followed a few tutorials like this one. but I keep getting differing results and I can’t see why.
Mostly I am getting a sphere with the north and south poles clipped off like this.

I’m using SU Pro on a MAC if that’s relevant and the layout in mm template.
What I want to do is create a sphere that I can 3D print that’s 60mm in circumference and has 2 x 3 mm holes in its face at 12mm centres.
So starting with a sphere seems like a good place to start but I’m open to advice on the best workflow.
Thanks in advance
