- Now I'd like to work on the opposite wall,…that is the wall that has the slideout in it.…To do this we need to reverse the section plane.…Go to the Window menu and open the Styles window.…Toggle on the Section Plane…and you might wonder, where is it?…How come it doesn't display?…And the answer is it's on a layer that's off,…so turn on these layers…and you'll see that the section plane…is actually on this Exterior Siding layer…because we were working on that layer when we made it.…So that's not a good practice,…let's move this section layer to Layer zero…which we'll always leave on…and that way we will never misplace it again.…
So let's go up to the Window menu to Entity Info…and change this to Layer zero.…Now right click on the section plane…and choose Reverse from this shortcut menu.…It now displays the other side…so I can orbit around.…And because the roof is sloping down…it's hard to see in there all the way.…So I think I'll move this section plane over…so it's much closer to the wall,…and then toggle it back off, close the Styles.…
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.
