Really grateful to have the presence of this forum, thank you for everybody!
After couple days of using Sketchup, what I can do is still limited, ^ ^, I am so dumb
I am using Sketchup Pro 2017 on macOS
Here is three questions that I already been have for a while, I wish I could find out how to solve these by myself in daily use, especially this one “How to locate center of a circle”. Occasionally a blue point with label “Center” will show up when I approaching the center, nevertheless, seems depends different object and current tool, this is not happened always. I find the approximate position of center by finding cross longest diameter, sometime when I am doing this, I feel like I am a fool, VERY annoying
So my first question is
- How to locate center of a circle surface? able to mark with Tape Measure or Line.
And my next question will be sounds pretty simple either (well, its not simple for me), its also relating to CENTER
- How to move a object(simple object like cylinder or rectangle) to the center of a edge?
like follow pictures:
For rectangle, I could get it to center by calculate the length of both sides and then move adjusting with specific length, Not work for cylinder or circle, cause I cannot find center of a circle surface
Please somebody help me with this O_O…
Here is my third question which is my last question
3) How to use Solid tool in complex object?
Solid tool in Sketchup is apparently pretty useful for me, but it never help me once when i really need it
Most of the time, I am modify a little complex model, extremely need solid tool for make a hole or remove all the uneven surface, at least I haven’t get a alternative way to do that yet
Solid tool is not work in a messy graphics combination, how do I make a depression in the middle of the cylinder in this situation?
Thanks for reading this!
