When you smooth an edge between two faces, you’re telling SketchUp to treat them as a single face — with a single material and smooth-looking shading. The difference is pretty huge, as you can see in the third cylinder below.
How do you make edges in SketchUp?
Just follow these steps:
- Select the Line tool (some people call it the Pencil tool).
- Click where you want your line to begin.
- Move your cursor to the desired endpoint for your line and click again to end. …
- When you want the Line tool to stop drawing lines, press the Esc key to snip the line at the last spot you clicked.
What are SketchUp profiles?
Profiles: Selecting the Profiles check box tells SketchUp to use a thicker line for edges that outline shapes in your model. Using profile lines is a pretty standard drawing convention that’s been around for a long time.
How do you ask Sketchup for an inference?
To find a Linear Inference, first you must hover over a Point Inference. When you first hover over a point that Sketchup recognizes as a Point Inference, the tool tip will change color, as you know. But if you hang there for a second, a little text box will pop up that tells you what type of inference it has locked to.
