Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the cavity tie, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- It's now time to create the cavity tie…and the insulation clip.…We�ll take this in two parts.…Firstly, we'll make the cavity tie,…and then in the following video…we'll make this insulation clip.…This is a simple follow me.…We're looking at a 60 mil diameter circle,…and an overall length of 280 millimeters.…We've got a little chunk taken out here and here.…I'll show you how to create that…without losing the integrity of the curve.…We've also got this little V drop down from there.…
So if we go over to chapter 03_06…and we can make a start.…So we'll start by making a base,…and it's going to be slightly oversized,…70 mil in the red direction…and 290 mil in the green direction.…So 70, 290, Enter.…And now I'll take our Tape Measure Tool,…and we'll put some grid lines in.…So we'll go to the midpoint of this one,…and we'll come down to the midpoint…of this edge.…
We'll also put one in at 35 mil…from this side and 35 mil from that side…so it gives us the center point of the circle.…So 35,…Enter, and 35,…Enter.…I'll now double click this rectangle…
