Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video The Pencil tool, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut.
- [Instructor] Chapter 03_02, we're going to be looking … at this thing here, the pencil tool, … in a little bit more detail. … First up, I'm going to explain this sheet. … It's got a grid associated to it, … and if I right-click, we can see … that we are object snapping and grid snapping. … There's also an option to hide the grid. … But I'll leave it visible for now. … So Mac or Windows, we both use the file menu, … and then down to Document Setup. … And under the grid option, we've got Show Grid. … And then there's a Major Grid of 6 mil spacing, … that's a quarter of an inch, … and the subdivisions are set to one, … so we can see the jump between each of the intersections … of the grid. … That's really the reason for this. … I'll click Close. … And then choose the pencil tool, … and then we can see it jumping … from the various intersections. … So when you use the pencil tool, … you click to create a line, or the start of a line. … And then, whether it's vertical or horizontal, … you get the red sort of marker and the green marker. …
