    using sketchup...

    so im starting to really get sketchup down.. but im having issues.. when I draw my sub cutouts they still stay part of the plane... so if I want to add color to the plane that the cut outs are on they take the color too... or if I want to see the inside of my box... its the same thing for my port openings... how do I fix this..

    Did you make that plane part of a group? If so, try exploding it first, add color then remake the group.

    Re: using sketchup...

    well start off building each panel as in sketch up as you would in the real world one of them at a time.

    for the holes all you have to do is use the height adjustment tool and hit the middle of the circle and start pulling it down, then enter .75 and it should drop down and be gone as needed.

    drag the push pull tool sideways when you are trying to make a hole.

    I have no idea what your problem is? I have used sketch up forever and it never did that for me.
    try tracing the line see if it separates.

    I have yet to need to pay for a cad program when sketch up is free and will do as much as you need for an enclosure.

    I tried it all after watching the basic tutorial. To the side, to the backside. I tried everything and the only thing that worked was exploding or creating the hole before I made my baffle a group. Im not complaining. I got that part down now :-) Now Im workin on making pvc elbows :-p
