Draw a Birdcage or Basket PullHow to draw a birdcage or basket pull in SketchUp
Recently a gentlemen requested some hints on how to draw a small birdcage or basket pull for a project he’s working on. In this video I show a couple of ways to set up to create the birdcage portion of the pull. I think this is a component that could be drawn to a high degree of detail but probably doesn’t benefit from it. In these examples you’ll note that the curves aren’t overly detailed. When viewed as a small part of a larger project, however, I believe they get the job done.
In the first method I used the Curve Maker extension which is available in the Extension Warehouse. In the second, I used a Bezier curve from Fredo’s Bezier Spline extension which is available from the Sketchucation Plugin Store. In both cases I used TIG-Weld, too. It’s also available from the Sketchucation Plugin Store.
