Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the cavity closer, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So, we're in Chapter 04-02,…and we now add to the cavity closer now.…Now, I've opened up the window components,…and so we have these browser buttons…at the bottom of the Component window.…And if I click on this,…it takes me to the in-model components.…These are all the ones we've created so far.…So, I'll just use this browser button to go back…to the window components, and then I can click on this…hundred mill cavity closer component and bring it in.…
I have created the insert points,…which is the origin point of the component,…and a suitable sort of insert point so we can use.…So, we'll just position that there,…and this basically wraps around the window opening.…It allows them to build the bricks to the cavity closers.…This goes in before the brick work.…Now, prior to cavity closers coming on the scene,…they used to return the brick work, or the block work,…to close the cavity,…but that left a very nice, cold bridge across here.…
You'd often get damp appearing in this sort of area,…and it would undermine the plaster,…
