Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Making wheels and axles, part of Designing a Tiny House with SketchUp.
- In this video we need to build the wheels and axles…that support the trailer.…So let's orbit around here and zoom in,…double click on this sub-floor,…click the top surface of the sub-floor…and copy it to the clipboard by pressing Command C,…or Control C on the PC.…Click outside the group to close it,…press V to paste that in place,…press G to make a group,…press M for move,…and move it down in the blue direction three feet.…
This will represent the ground plane.…I'm going to right click on that group…and choose Lock…so that I don't accidentally move the ground plane.…Now over here we have this element…which we just pulled down some arbitrary distance…in the previous video.…I'll double click on that,…select the bottom surface,…and move it up in the blue direction…and then hold down the Shift key…to lock in the blue direction…and click on the ground plane.…That will make sure that this pole reaches down…and just to the ground.…
Now over here we're going to build the wheels…and I want to create a surface…that is on this side where the wheel will go.…
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.
