Dave’s suggestions from my very first post on this gave me great ideas – and simply trying to replicate what he did was a fantastic learning experience. You can click on the image to get the whole thing.
I was able to play with sketchup on my commute to work back and forth yesterday, and woke up early this AM to fix some errors I made. The key to success was making groups which I wasn’t doing before. I was very pleased when all the pieces finally fit together.
My commute is later this morning, which gives me some time before the work rush starts at home…
The one thing I have not figured out (whether it’s a problem of mine or a feature of sketchup) is to color in the face under the arc. I have the horizontal lines connecting, but maybe there are other connector points that need to be joined so it knows it’s a face?
