Hey guys, I’m a new person to SketchUp and my boss wants me on level 10000 by tomorrow when I am a slow but hard-working learner that struggles to get CAD in general. - YIKES, pray for me. Anywho.
In the early weeks of learning SketchUp I followed a beginners tutorial (which I cannot find at all :/) that showed users how to make a boat. I actually made the boat and was proud of myself. When learning to create this boat, there was a step that I have been using for the past two weeks now: which is too extend/stretch a face so that it’s edges are diagonal.
So, I don’t think I properly explained exactly what I am trying to do, so here’s my long explanation tehehe:
So I would draw a rectangle box
- would press M (move) tool AND also the CTRL button (to bring up the plus sign to duplicate something) [- lol I know you guys know this but I want to give clear explanations here so bare with]
- As I position my copied square to be on top of my of the original square; just separating it with a bit of height
- I would then hit the ALT key (Windows users - wohoo)
- the result would end with an embossed leg. [see picture for reference]
@AT work, that trick was not working and I was googling and searching for like 2 hrs, because I am still new at this programme. One user did mention that it was due to an extension plug interfering but I am like 2 days old with understanding how to use the basic tools of S.U and I have no clue of how to check if the plug- in is a factor.
Anyways, does anybody have any guesses as to why it’s not working OR am I approaching my intended aim wrong?
