Title: MFT in sketchup
Post by: Wooden Skye on April 13, 2017, 03:27 PM
I am looking for a folded MFT/3 to use in a design I am doing. I have looked in the 3D warehouse and couldn't find 1.  If anybody has or could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. If I download from 3D warehouse, how do I pull off a specific part, like the folded table from a model.

Thank you
Bryan

Hey Bryan.

I don't have any idea if one is in the warehouse, but once you have it, you will need to ungroup it to get parts out of it. Might have to do it several times in fact.

Got me curious about your project!  Hope to see it up here soon!!

Cheers. Bryan.

I found one in the model gallery that I used by Mark H.  He did a nice job.  It is not folded, however it was easy to explode and put the legs on a separate layer.  By doing that I could easily simulate the folded table by hiding the leg layer.  If needed, I believe the legs could be rotated once exploded and regrouped.

Thank you Dick, I will look for that next time I'm back on.  I'm still learning sketch up so sometimes I need a lot of practice and error.
