Hello All,

I am not sure it is the right place to ask this question, sorry if I am wrong.

So, I would like to know if a personal-message is really sent when it appears in the "outbox" of my profile?

If it's in the outbox, it is sent but not read yet. If it's under "Sent messages", it has already been delivered and read by the recipient.

Hello everybody - I'm a newbie to the site and (currently) the most casual of casual users. Am intending to change that over the next few years before leaving my current employer to go it alone (small scale infrastructure engineering). I have a feeling I'm going to be asking the assorted wise heads here a lot of questions in the meantime... thanks in advance!

A newbie question: I never used SU before (2017 make) and I read online somewhere that it's better to start in 2d and get to know the tools. Do you agree that this is a good way to start learning SketchUp? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

I wouldn't agree at all. SketchUp is a 3D modeling tool. You should learn it in 3D.

Hi, I have an question but it seems that I can't write in the forums (yet?). So apologies if I am dumping the question in the wrong place...

How can I reduce line width when exporting 2D drawings (.dwg format) from Sketchup to be used in CNC software (specifically in Enroute)?

I realized that without controlling the line width, small perforations or arches are heavily segmented which gives problems when loading the files.

Hopefully someone can help.

Warm regards!

Jose

Line weight has nothing to do with the segmentation of arcs, circles, and curves. They will always be segmented in SketchUp. If you export the 2D file using the 3D .dwg exporter instead, the acrs, circles, and curves will be smoothed as you want them to be.

FWIW, SketchUp doesn't have real line weight control. You can set a thickness for Profile edges but that's not the same. You could change the line weight in LayOut, however.
