I’ve been trying, to my utter misery, to teach myself Sketchup, and while I have made some progress, I’ve gotten to something that’s stumped me entirely.
Here’s the situation: imagine a series of 2 x 10s, meant to be the framing of a deck. It looks something like this:
So you see that the right-most 2x10 is at an angle, in other words, not parallel to one of the built-in axes that Sketchup uses.
And here’s the problem: it’s lost its top. Imagine a hollow 2x10, with just the faces, ends, and bottoms, but no top.
So all I ask for in this life, really, is some straightforward method to put a top on it. Everything I’ve tried has just caused cascading problems (which seems to be something of a feature of this application, by the way), without even really addressing the one basic problem.
I hope someone here has a black belt in Sketchup (I’m using the freeware version, if it matters), and can put me right.
Otherwise it’s over Niagara with me.
