Creating a basic 3D model with SketchUp Pro 2016
To create a basic 3D model with SketchUp Pro 2016, you need to use some of the tools available in the toolbar. Here are some of the most common tools and how to use them:
The select tool: allows you to select entities (edges, faces, groups, components) in your model by clicking on them or dragging a selection box around them.
The move tool: allows you to move entities by clicking on them and dragging them to a new location. You can also use the arrow keys to lock the movement along an axis or a plane.
The rotate tool: allows you to rotate entities by clicking on them and dragging them around a center point. You can also use the arrow keys to lock the rotation around an axis or a plane.
The scale tool: allows you to scale entities by clicking on them and dragging their handles. You can also use the modifier keys (Ctrl, Shift, Alt) to scale uniformly, proportionally, or about center.
The push/pull tool: allows you to extrude faces by clicking on them and dragging them along their normal direction. You can also use the modifier keys (Ctrl, Alt) to create new faces or cut openings.
The line tool: allows you to draw edges by clicking on points in the drawing area. You can also use the inference engine to snap to existing points, edges, planes, or axes.
The rectangle tool: allows you to draw rectangles by clicking on two opposite corners. You can also use the modifier keys (Ctrl, Shift) to draw squares or centered rectangles.
The circle tool: allows you to draw circles by clicking on the center point and dragging outwards. You can also use the modifier keys (Ctrl, Shift) to draw polygons or centered circles.
The arc tool: allows you to draw arcs by clicking on three points (start point, end point, bulge point). You can also use the modifier keys (Ctrl) to draw pie slices.
