- Our next task is to design a skin that…goes around the outside surfaces of the slideout.…Let's make a new layer called "Slideout Skin"…and make that current.…If you zoom in down here you'll see that there's…provision for a gap here between the frame and the seal…and let's press "t" and measure what that is.…I need to actually click here…because the focus was still in the Layers panel.…I need to click here before I can press "t," okay.…So I'm going to click these two points…and let's see how far it is, half an inch.…
So we're going to have this panel…that's a waterproofing material…that's going to be facing the elements…on the outside of the unit.…So, what I need to do is model that…and I'm having some trouble seeing it in there…but if I orbit just so I can just see it in there.…I'll press "r" for rectangle and draw…the rectangle right from there,…and come around the other side here…and snap it right there.…
Then I'm going to press "p" and pull that out…all the way to the top, and I need to snap up there…so I find some place where I can snap to…
In this course, author Scott Onstott shows step-by-step how to build a tiny house, including every virtual stud, sheet of plywood, and appliance going into the project. Along the way, he explores SketchUp features such as components, groups, layers, and textures. By building a house in SketchUp in this detailed manner, you can work out any unforeseen spatial conflicts in the design and virtually eliminate construction problems before you are in the field.
