The Follow Me tool in Sketchup allows the design of more complex three dimensional objects. It is a straightforward tool that will take your designs to that next level of complexity.
When designing in Sketchup it is best practice to be mindful and deliberate about correctly setting dimensions when you create an object or sketch. This lesson shows you how you can go back and edit dimensions if needed.
In this lesson we use Sketchup to design a more complex 3D device. This box is not a simple extrusion, because the hinges are extruded along an orthogonal axis. Hence in this lesson we learn how to sketch and extrude in orthogonal planes in the same design. In the end the design worked very well, and we printed it both on the Prusa Mk2 I3 and the Raise3D N2 Plus. Prints were successful on both machine.
