Anna, you must be a psychic! I have been thinking about writing you asking to show the corners for a while. I even thought: "Well, she must have some free time now since it is 20 degrees outside and won't be mad with my question"
And here you are, like a best friend who knows what you need before you ask her! Thank you!

Hey Anna,

Great tutorial. I'm a big fan of Sketchup too, and I like seeing how you use it to create plans for all your projects. I just recently created a tutorial on how to create angle cuts in Sketchup and thought I would share it here.

I cover the same thing you do here, but also go into how to make angle cuts on curved profiles such as door and window casings. You have to do a few things differently, and I explore a few different options in a 3 part video tutorial.

Hello Ana,

I searched the world over for an easy way to cut (in Sketch Up) 2 x 4's at an angle... and your solution/tutorial is the best! THANKS!

Hi, thanks for this, I was able to successfully use it to cut a solid piece at an angle. I now to use sketchup to represent a piece of square tubular steel cut at an angle, but I cant seem to work out how to do that. Are you able to help?


Thanks again
