Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Join and Split tools, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut (2015).
- So we're in Chapter 12-03 and I'm going…to show you how to use these things.…This is a Join tool, little public glue,…and the Scalpel which is the split tool…and what we're going to do is to croat a chair…using our existing CAD Geometry…which we turned into a vector and grouped.…What this has done is broken it up…into a series of bits and some of them are joined…to some things, some of them are joined to other things…and so all we need to do…is to work out which bits we want.…Now, you can't share a border.…So what I have to do, I can't have this thing…joining this, coming around to this,…and also joining this bit.…
So this has to be a closed path…and this has to be a closed path.…But if my chair is going to be all the same color…then I could take the path as this thing…and just add that on over the top.…But currently it's joined to this bit.…So I'm going to use the split tool…and hover over that bit there and click, left-click.…So I've split those two bits.…So now I can take this and if I just move it up…and if I keep it a distance, so one mill.…
