Sandbox Tools

Hi everybody :

When using SANDBOX /FROM SCRATCH, how do I adjust the distance between lines. In Sketchup 8, looks like the default is 10 feet. Question : wouldn't a smaller distance allow for a smoother terrain ?

After selecting From Scratch, keyin the desired cell size then define the grid. Certainly smaller would mean smoother. Just means a lot more edges and faces to deal with.

Nothing is worthless, it can always be used as a bad example.

Okay.....I see what you mean, I selected Sandbox / From Scratch. Then...BEFORE......drawing out the "perimeter".....type in the 5' (instead of the default 10'). But, make sure you press ENTER before you do the layout. Thanks for your help. garystan
