Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Building up to the damp-proof course (DPC), part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- So we're starting to add…the extra course of blocks…and the extra five courses of bricks.…Now I'll leave the bricks until last…because they're much easier to do,…and the reason they're much easier to do…is the size of the brick.…The length of a brick is twice the width, plus a joint.…So that distance plus a joint,…plus that distance again equals this.…So it means that they stack very nicely…in stretcher bond.…However, the blocks are slightly different…in so much as they all have varying widths,…and they don't always tie in properly,…and to get the maximum amount of strength…in our blocks, in the bond,…we want to make sure that we stagger them…so they're sitting half-on this gap.…
So we do that first,…so I'll just come around to this side.…And I'll copy a block in this orientation…and a block in this orientation,…so I might as well select them both,…using the Control key on the Windows machine…Move tool.…Again, press the Control key on the Windows machine…and the Alt key on the Mac,…and we'll be able to create a copy.…
