I’m sure this is a pretty simple question, but I haven’t been able to figure it out on my own, or find any answers online.
I have a Sketchup model with various components and groups, and I’m trying to create a new component on the same face of an existing component. I locked the existing component, then traced the shapes I want to push/pull with the line tool, and made that into a new component. I can’t pull the drawing to make it into a 3D object. I’m guessing I need to close the drawing, or somehow tell Sketchup that it’s an entity it can push/pull, but I cannot figure out how to do that.
To simplify, I copied the sketch into a new file.example.skp (1.1 MB)
I should add that I’m using the free version, which appears to lack the solid tools. Maybe this is only possible in the Pro version?
