Draw Woven Slats for a Room Divider Screen

Lately for my weekend SketchUp apply I drew a room divider
display screen primarily based on pictures of an vintage display screen I discovered whereas
taking a look at a used furnishings clearinghouse web site. The highest part
is made within the Kumiko fashion whereas the underside consists of some
skinny slats woven between a few spindles. I used to be requested by
a number of folks how I made the woven slats. This video exhibits the
course of. It’s fairly quick with the best instruments.

I used two extensions for this one, each of which could be discovered
within the Sketchucation
Plugin Store
. The primary is Bezier Spline extension and
the second, TIG-Weld.

Only a word about drawing the curve for the slat. I used the
Catmull Spline device as a result of the curve passes by the
management factors. The curve might be drawn with the Bezier Curve
device however since that sort of curve doesn’t move by the
contrl factors, it might take some enjoying round to get the
curve excellent.


And only a word concerning the slats. I drew them in order that they finish on the
posts. They actually ought to match into grooves within the posts. They
might be laid out with the ends prolonged a bit or you may use
Push/Pull on the ends so as to add the required size. I didn’t
hassle as a result of it wouldn’t present within the mannequin and I didn’t draw
this piece to make detailed plans.
