I am slowly learning SketchUp within the context of designing hobby wood working projects, and finally getting to the point where I am taking dimensions seriously.
I have been having trouble understanding how precision and snapping works in SketchUp.
I think I understand the basic premise of these concepts, but I have created some confusing situations.
For example, I have tried setting snapping to larger increments such as 1/8" with the intent that every shape I make is dimensioned in 1/8" increments.
The dimension labels will display the 1/8" increments but it seems like the shapes are often times not exactly formed in the 1/8" increments. It seems as if the dimension labels include a rounding error.
I imagine I am missing a basic concept, and tried searching for info, but haven’t gleaned any insights.
So, what should I do if I want to maintain very fine precision but enjoy the convenience of working in the increments that are common in wood working?
