What am I missing here? Trying to measure between interior walls.


Recommended Posts

In the image below, I just started a full design, however, I am trying to measure between the exterior wall and the interior wall to make beams in Sketchup so I can import them in to make an arched timber frame interior. I keep trying the measuring tools but I can't get them to line up so the measurement is off I think. 

Also is there a way to put a marker, like a colored dot or x where you want an object or piece placed so you can measure from that object or snap to it?

Thanks.

I looks like you have done that on the left side.

 

Have you reviewed your dimension defaults and docs on dimensioning?

I did do that but I tried a test beam and it seemed off. I am wondering if I got it on the wall or more through the wall. 

I did look through it, I must be in the wrong section, there are two different guides and I'll take a look at those again.


Yes, a point.
