Topic tags/keywords: sketchup

I am modeling a cabinet door with recessed roundovers on the stiles and coves on the rails. the outer edges of the stiles and rails are also rounded over. Sketchup will not allow a curved face to be extruded through another curved face, resulting in some funky looking joinery. I can do a workaround to render the finished product to look good, but it does not reflect the actual shapes of the parts.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Doug, I am sure that DaveR will chime in on this. He is the resident Sketchup expert on board here.

Doug, I will be interested in seeing Dave’s response to this. It sounds like you are having a problem that I do as well. Trying to put a round over, for instance, on mitered joints just does not work with the push/pull tool. Just guessing I would say it probably involves using the follow me tool but I am still trying to get familiar with that function.

Daver,

Yes, that is exactly what I am trying to do.

No doubt in my mind Dave you are the resident expert. Great job what you can do with sketchup always amazes me.

Looks Great! Easy, too! I’ll give it a try, and let you know how it works out.

How do you insert the illustrations into this thread?
