Hi Jim,

Hi Jim,
Thank you for your answer.
I can see in my plugin menu.
when I insert the number in "lenght, amplitude and segment" I have the same straight line beginning from the centre....
I don't know...
Probably I have to play more with it.

I am a novice using Sketchup make 2014 (free), but am slowly learning.

I have used your sine wave generator to create a repetative sine wave line successfully.

What I am trying to do is to take a rectangle and add the sine wave line within the rectangle and then erase excess material so my rectangle has a sine wave edge. I will then pull the shape up 1/2" to form my item.

The resulting form will be exported as a stl file for 3D printing.

My problem is that the sine wave form line will not join to the rectangle. When I select a section to erase it erases the entire rectangle. Is there some way to join the sine wave line to the rectangle?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

@Bob

The sine curve is made inside a group.
This allows you to position it after it's created - otherwise it might stick to other geometry.
You can Select that group and use the context-menu Explode, so it merges with any geometry around it.

Thanks TIG, that was pretty easy! Now I know a little more about Sketchup.
