Understand how to create bevels in SketchUp. In this video, George shows how to create both interior and exterior bevels in SketchUp. He draws the outline of the bevel, and then uses Follow Me to trace it along a path.
- [Instructor] Hi, I'm George Maestri.…And today we're going to take a look…at how to create bevels in SketchUp.…And we're going to take a look…at both outside and inside bevels.…So we're going to take a look at…how to do a half-round around the outside,…as well as a route, or an inside bevel,…along the inside to create this shape.…So let's go ahead and start off with a very simple object.…I have a file called Bevels dot SketchUp.…And it's basically just a box.…So what we're going to do is create an outside bevel first,…and then we'll do the inside bevel second.…
So, to create the outside bevel,…we first need to define the depth of that bevel.…Then we need to draw the shape of the bevel.…And then we will create it.…So the first thing I want to do…is go ahead and create an offset…that will determine the depth of that bevel.…So I can do that by using my offset tool.…Going to select that.…Go onto this big face here.…And let's create a half-inch bevel.…So I'm going to just bring this close to the edge.…
In fact, we could just type in 0.5 inches.…
