Watching with interest , how large overall is this going to end up?
This next hinge part took ages to concoct. The JWST has angled rectangular section support arms and I wanted it to look right. Sketchup hates odd angles and the odd axes makes it super complex because the "push/pull" tool basically heads off on the axis which may or may not be along the body of the part if the same "group" has odd angles in it.
You might well already know this but..
You can use the 'follow me' tool like you would the push/pull but that tool will pull a face along a designated line in a model or you can draw a new line in the direction you want the face to go and follow that.
There is also an option to re-orientate the axes. You can also assign individual axes to each group but I'm not sure if the 2017 version supports that?
