This post is Part 1 of a multi-part series on SketchUp Tricks. More precisely, methods of modeling that save time. Today I am going to show you some methods to draw boards with symmetrical ends and resize those boards more efficiently. I am also going to demonstrate how to use components that have different dimension, including internal dimensions such as mortises, and complex shapes for repurposing. You may want to read my post Cherry Bedside Table Shop Drawings and download the SketchUp model for practicing.
Once again I will demonstrate these techniques with a video.
