SketchUp 2017—The New Offset Tool


Not too long ago a buddy requested me how I might draw the entrance edge
profile for the underside board, the gallery seat, for Lonnie
Chicken’s Pennsylvania Secretary from the March/April 2002
subject of Nice Woodworking. He was having hassle
drawing the radius profile that will get routed on the entrance edge.
Observe Me is the apparent device of selection and the everyday
strategy could be to attract the form of the cutter and take away
the waste with it. This creates quite a few artifacts that want
to be cleaned up. Thankfully, there’s a greater strategy thanks
to the well timed launch of SketchUp 2017.

My buddy was additionally interested in how I’d go about drawing the
scalloped edge particulars, so on this video I begin the gallery
seat from the start. Then I present how chopping away the waste
with Observe Me works however provides some undesirable geometry. After
that, I present the brand new Offset device in SketchUp 2017 which makes
the roundover course of virtually too straightforward. Additionally, on the finish of the
video I show how I used the curves from the gallery seat
to get the entrance floor of the drawer entrance and the horizontal

I used one plugin and that’s TIG-Weld which is obtainable at no
cost within the Sketchucation Extension Retailer.
