Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating circles and polygons, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…In addition to the rectangle, which is a four sided figure, a sketch…allows us also to do polygons and circles, which have different numbers of sides.…We can find those here, under Draw.…We have Polygon and Circle. And you can also find them here.…This is the Polygon tool, and this is the Circle tool.…Now the reason I'm introducing these at the…same time is that they're kind of related.…Basically a polygon and a circle are the same thing,…except the circle usually has more sides.…So let me first off start with the Polygon tool.…
When I click on this, you'll notice in the bottom right…hand corner, it tells me how many sides are in this.…And by default it gives you six sides, so we have a hexagon.…Then I left click on this, and I can drag out…that hexagon, and again I can snap to a different axis…if I want. And then I can let go.…And also in the bottom right hand corner, it tells me the radius.…So, if I wanted to, I could change the radius, say, make it four feet.…And now I have a four foot radius polygon.…
