Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Eraser tools, part of SketchUp 2016 Essential Training.
- Pencils usually have erasers on the end,…and to complement the Line Tool, we also…have an Eraser Tool in SketchUp.…Now, we can find it in a couple places here.…We have the Eraser Tool here, in the Toolbox…and also under Tools, we have the Eraser,…and the hotkey for that is e.…Now, when this comes up, we get something…that looks like an old, pink eraser.…Now, what we can do is we can just hover over lines…and left-click on them and we can delete edges…so this can be used to clean-up a model.…
Now, if you wanted to, you could use the Select Tool…to select and edge and hit delete,…but that won't create exactly the same effect…as the Eraser Tool and so this may cause you some problems…when you Export this into another Packet…so get in the habit of using the Eraser.…Now the Eraser can be used to clean-up models,…such as this, but you can also use it…to work with things such as Guidelines.…
For example, if I were to draw some lines here,…along the top edge, we could use those lines…as the basis of something like a door or a window…
