Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the brick half, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- [Voiceover] In Chapter 3-02,…we're going to create this half brick.…Notice that we need a bit of tidying up to do…up here as well, because we either need to…put one in there or take these two out.…I'll take these two out.…Double click and select,…and delete those two bricks.…We've ended up with our three little jagged bits…that we'll need to fill in with the half bricks.…Now, these three here, are going to be…the ones we are going to use.…The point is bringing in the component to put in.…We'll use these, they're already lined up.…If we position them so that this edge…lines up with this edge,…then everything is going to be perfect.…
So we don't need to do any Math,…we need to just use the existing bricks…to do our alignment for us with these three selected.…To select the three,…you need your finger on the Ctrl key,…that's going to add to the selection.…If you are using the Mac, then it is the Alt/Opt key.…And, similarly, to copy, click on the Move tool,…tap the Ctrl, Alt or Opt keys,…and click at this point here.…
