In sketchup, I have a solid box. I want to extract a portion of the box so when you look at it, it looks like a mold. Picture 3 vertical pipes with a horizontal pipe connection all three of them at the bottom. It looks like this:

|   |   |
|   |   |
|   |   |
\-------/

The bottom left and right corners are pipe joints, 90 degree bends. The center pipe forms a T intersection. How can I draw this in SketchUp 8?

1 Answer 1

Corner Pipe Joint

Use quart of a torus to form a corner Pipe Joint, then connect the cilinders to it.

Middle Pipe Joint

Just end your middle cilinder in the middle of the bottom cilinder, if you want it rounded then use two toruses.

Okay - that makes sense. But what about extruding it from the "box?" –  Josh M. May 21 '11 at 22:43
