How to remove half circle from material

Shaun Guthrie

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Sketchup, want to create one of my designs in it over paper.  Been following along Jay Bates and his examples however I cannot figure out how to remove a half circle from material.  You'll see in this picture I want to cut out the circle on Jay Bates Box Joint example however no matter what I do I cannot push that material away.  It's probably something simple!

I've attached a picture in Sketchup as reference and also showed the paper sketch of what I'm trying to do.

Thanks in advance!

Erase the half semi circle protruding - you have to erase the one behind too. Then delete the vertical line (the diameter) - again erasing the one behind too.

The thing with Sketchup is don't overthink it. Simple is best.

Thanks Terry.  I also heard back from Jay as well. I forgot to mention the box was a component. I needed to edit the component before creating the circle.  Then I can remove the material with the push/pull tool.
