Sketchup Help - Tablesaw Outfeed (T-Track) Table
Hi - I am currently learning Sketchup - looking at all the great youtube videos and other tutorials that are out there on the web.
My current outfeed table is the standard Delta outfeed table that I bought about 15 years ago when I bought a Unisaw. It has started to sag and is very dinged up, so I want to build a new outfeed table.
I like the concept of the new Rockler T-Track table, so I would like to embed a T-track system on my outfeed table behind the saw.
I have attached a picture of the Rockler T-Track Table - for those that haven't seen one.
My table will be larger - about 48x65, with a T-Track Grid to allow me to clamp anywhere on the grid using the 5 or 6 existing Kreg clamps that I currently have. This will make things very flexible for clamping most anything.
MY SKETCHUP DRAWING
You can see that I have added 2 dados for the miter gauge tracks so that the tablesaw sled can move freely past the end of the saw.
I was able to place the 7 dados for the T-tracks that run the length (65") of the outfeed table and color them Rockler Blue.
You can see I have added Sketchup Guides for the T-tracks that run the width (48") of the table.
Now - here is my Sketchup issue.
When I tried to draw the rectangles and use the Push/Pull tool to create the 3/4" dados for the T-Track along the 48" direction, Sketchup wouldn't seem to allow me to make these dados "intersect" with the dados I had already drawn for the 65" direction. You can see I was able to create 6 short dados that intersect the 1st T-Track, but Sketchup seems to want to make me create all these short dados in the grid.
Seems like there should be a way to draw a grid of T-Tracks like I am envisioning?
Remember, that I am an EXTREME novice in Sketchup - this is my first real drawing, so if you reply, please be specific since I am a newbie.
Any help would be greatly appreciated - I am probably missing some little detail that would allow me to complete these T-track grids.
Sketchup gurus - feel free to look at my Sketchup drawing - maybe it would be easier for you to look at my drawing in your Sketchup and see what I might have done that would be causing this issue.
I have attached a .jpg of the Sketchup Drawing
I also attached the .zip file of the .skp file, since .skp is not an allowed file format.
