I have got a number of books from the "Dummies" sequence, and sometimes they depart a section to be wanted. This one quite delivers.In only one weekend, with the aid of this booklet and writer Aidan Chopra's first-class better half movies on YouTube, I went from entire Sketchup newbie to truly generating usable development plans for a small shed.Some academics can take in loads of it slow with out dealing with to get any functional info into your head. Aidan's bought a knack for figuring out and supplying you with what you must comprehend to get really up and operating with Google Sketchup.Five stars!

Faces are always flat. In SketchUp, even surfaces that look curved are made up of multiple, flat faces. In the model shown in Figure 2-5, you can see that what looks like organically shaped surfaces (on the left) are really just lots of smaller faces (on the right). To make a bunch of flat faces look like one big, curvy surface, the edges between them are smoothed; you can find out more about smoothing edges in Chapter 6. ߜ Just like edges, faces don’t have any thickness. If faces are a lot like pieces of paper, they’re infinitely thin pieces of paper — they don’t have any thickness.
In the left side of Figure 2-10, I draw an edge that crosses one of the edges that defines a face. Doing so doesn’t split any of the edges, and more importantly, it doesn’t split the face. If I want to make the edge I just drew into two edges, I need to retrace one of its segments with the Line tool (as shown in the middle image of Figure 2-10). When I do, I don’t just end up with two edges instead of one; I also end up splitting the face (as you can see in the right side of Figure 2-10). Figure 2-10: Crossing one edge with another doesn’t cut either one of them.
Release Shift to unlock the inference. Encouraging inferences Sometimes, an inference you need doesn’t show up on its own — when this happens, you have to encourage it. To encourage an inference, just hover your cursor over the part of your model you’d like to “infer” from, and then slowly go back to whatever you were doing when you decided you could use an inference. The following example demonstrates how to encourage an inference. Color Plate 7 shows a model of a cylinder. I’d like to start drawing an edge that lines up perfectly with the center of the circle on top of the cylinder, but I don’t want it to start at the center itself.
