Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Trench and backfill, part of SketchUp for Architecture: Details.
- Now it's time to create the trench…and our backfill, which is two separate elements.…What we'll also do is create the hardcore separately as well…We'll do it slightly different than we've got it here…but this piece of grammed which is going to be…our sort of, this and then this is going to be our hardcore.…If we think about this, instead of making some…complicated shapes by sort of selecting a line…and push pulling it out and then adding extra bits…and pieces, we'll just take this profile.…This shape here and we'll follow me around the corner…and then that's pretty much got it all done…in one fellow swoop and then we'll try…something similar with these bits.…
We can't do these together.…We have to do them individually…but it's not going to be too onerous a task.…So just spend a little bit of time…thinking about how you're going to do something…and it's often going to be a time saving exercise eventually…so we move over to the Chapter 2- 07 file…and we are creating our trench and backfill…so we'll start off with the tape measure tool.…
