SObject: Want sections to stay horizontal

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by Paul Minnaar, Jul 6, 2010.

  1. Hi chaps. Did searches, did not find answers.

    I have created a start, pattern and end section in Sketchup for this SObject - and it works, just not the way I want it to.

    If you look at the photo of the real pits at Roy Hesketh, you see that the sections of the pits stepped down as the pit lane goes downhill.

    Now if you look at a test screen of the SObject, in the background, you see that it forms a perfect line down the hill. The objects in the foreground are seperate objects placed like I'd like the SObect to behave.


    Is there a way of setting up the sections to stay horizontal like this, and not have to use separate objects to create the pits.

  2. Open the SObject window, select Object Pieces. Set Grounding to 'Object is lowered to ground underneath' and then select 'Curve with Spline'. Seems a bit contradictory but it works with one of my SObjects.
  3. Rsoul, I'll give that a bash. I did mess with those settings but not in that configuration.

    I'll let you know if it works. Thanks for reply
  4. There you go, solved.

    Thank you R Soul. That configuration in the properties worked perfectly. The pits are taking on a very original look now. Now all I have to do, is remodel the flat section where people stand on top of them, as the step downs can be seen straight through each step as they are not thick enough. Brilliant, thanks, I'll get these working 100% soon.
