...perpendicular to the starting edge :?:
I am perplex :shock:
Is not more "at the egal distance from the external commune vertex"? ;)
Now it is 45°(or 135°) to the starting edge so not perpendicular! ;)

Thanks for a new trick Coen :D
with the rotation tool, pick the centre of rotation and then control the axis of rotation by holding down lmb and sliding in the required direction. Great! I've always rotated the model to get a different axis, which can be annoying.

Did this ever get covered anywhere else? To have it interactive right there in the forum post is really sweet. Pointers, tips, tricks, etc. would all be appreciated.

Thanks,
August

Hey Coen Nice tutorial mate but can't you get the same result using fillet ...... just highlight your rectangle and click on fillet and type in your radius.............

Yeah just looked at the date of the tutorial it's been a while, just shows how much easier SketchUp is when you throw in a
few good rubys.............

It's not always about being able to do it easier with rubies. You should actually learn to do these things by hand, with native SU tools so that you model safely and with self confidence. Then can the rubies come to speed up your workflow...

Hey Coen,

I was reflecting myself on a way to make this simple figure (rounded rectangle) easy to do in SU, and i am fallen up on your tut :thumb:

Using the Rotate Tool along the proper axis to reverse the first two corners, was what i was still missing. ;)

Here is, using your way, a little more quick solution:


PS to Gaieus: no use here of any ruby :|

I'm not saying the use of a ruby is always the best way to go, but isn't the idea of a tutorial forum all about teaching people different ways to do things, then at least they have a choice..........

I agree with Gaieus in the idea learning SketchUp the most completely using it's native tools is a necessary step, beside take advantage of using our mugnificient ruby scripts. I can add it is often a spiritual pleasure to find out the way of an elegant solution for complex duty with simple native tools.

Then you are right about ruby. But you know well we can find in this place many threads which take intensive advantage of them. But you are also right in the way for specific tuts on each complex ruby are missing. (It is something I'm thinking about for a while...)

Yes, that's what I also meant. Most of the (modelling) ruby plugins "only" automate ways SU can do and you could also do by hand - although admittedly very slowly and painstakingly. There's nothing wrong in using plugins of course, I was just going to say that in order to fully "master" SU, you have to be able to do most things by hand also and this way understand how things (and even plugins) work.

Then of course there is definitely a kind of "shortage" in good tutorial examples about using ruby scripts and good demonstrations about how different plugins help you with speeding up modelling would really be cool.
