Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the cavity insulation, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details (2015).
- It's time now to add the insulation.…We'll be doing the ties and the clips in the next video,…but we'll just add these cavity batts there,…50 mil thick.…The height of them is 450 and the width of them is 1,200.…I've also noticed that our window opening is slightly…bigger in this example than the one we're building,…so we'll just add a few extra blocks to this edge,…so you can create sort of this bit here.…So we're now in chapter 03-05 Adding the insulation.…
I've turned on the block work walls again so we can attach…the insulation to these once we've created it.…Rectangle tool is what we need.…So click on the rectangle tool…and we'll drag down on the red direction 1,200…and then comma 50 for the thickness…and then push/pull,…450 high, four, five, zero, Enter.…Now if we select that and right-click…we can make a component…and this we can call "insulation,"…and then Create.…
Now what I'll also do is just select this block work…above ground and double-click to add it.…Then I can select this block and Shift select that one,…
