Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Create stretched fabric effects, part of SketchUp: Tips & Tricks.
- [Instructor] Hi, I'm George Maestri,…and today we're going to look at how to…create stretched fabric structures.…These are often known as tensile structures,…and this is a very simple one,…it's called a shade sail.…And as you can see, it's providing some shade…for an outdoor area.…So let's go ahead and just dive in,…and I'll show you how to create these sorts of structures.…So I'm going to start off with just the uprights…for this sail.…And because this is a four-sided structure,…I'm going to create four poles,…and then I can do almost all of this…just by using the line tool.…
Now, I'm going to go ahead and turn off my axes…just to make it look a little bit easier here.…And so what I'm going to do first is…just draw the outline of that sail.…Now, the sail is stretched between these poles,…and when it's perfectly stretched…it will be a straight line.…So I'm going to go ahead and select my line tool…and I'm going to snap to the inside top corners of these.…So I'm just going to draw four lines,…and as you can see these look kind of like…
