Justein Geis, the renowned sketchup trainer, has provided some useful sketchup tips on how to use Radial Bend Tool available in FredoScale for producing a bent basketweave shape.
FredoScale is a useful plugin for sketchup that can be used to adjust the selection box around a set of objects and interactively assign various geometric transformations, like Scaling, Tapering, Stretching, Plane Shear, Twisting, Bending and Rotation. By extension, some transformation is accomplished devoid of a selection box.
The plugin comprises of set of tools which facilitate the users to scale, taper, shear on a plane, stretch, twist, radial bend and rotate in various ways.
The “Stretching with Orientation to Scaling Box is a very useful tool among the toolset that can be used to scale an object devoid of entirely scaling aspects of the object like trims or general objects. Another handy tool is the “Radial Bending by Selection of Plane and Angle” that can be used to curve objects in definite angles.
