Sketchup is driving me NUTS.
I am trying to create a design that involves what is in effect a tubular question mark with curves where the circular top semi-circle joins the vertial. However Sketchup’s “Follow Me” is refusing to go around corners!
Here’s what I did.
I started by creating a circle,
I used the Line tool to remove the unwanted section of the circle.
I drew a line from the base of the circle down/away from the center of the circle.
I then used the “2-Point Arc” tool to make a radiused corner
I then deleted the unwanted parts of the corner.
==> We now have a question mark shape.
I add a circle whose center is at the base of the question mark shape
I then select all 3 sections of the line using select tool
But when I click on the Follow Me tool it either soon stops and the end of the straight section OR it moans that the line is on a path or something similar.
I have tried rebuilding the above about 5 times, using slightly different techniques but still it fails to work.
What am I doing wrong?
e.g. Is there something I need to do to make the question mark line formally become a single line?
Honestly I go from loving Sketchup - all is so easy in the tutorials - to wanting to kill someone.
(OK before you call the cops, no not literally.)
PS Does it matter whether I extrude from the white or the dark side?
