I have tried your suggestion but when I try to take the hole out of the middle, it also removes the boat. I even tried to remove the boat before creating the hole. Something small if preventing this from working. Thanks for you attention though.

If you are almost there post the plan file with a few notes for some help.  Or if you have a way of recording post a video of where it goes wrong for you.  In theory you should be able to cut a round hole and then put the sailboat into it.

You probably already figured this out on your own by now, but I was bored so I gave it a shot. Import it as millwork. The sail is a bit different, but it's not bad I think. I imported a silhouette of a sailboat, traced it, convert to psolids, make psolid balusters, solid subtracted to make the circle. I pretty much followed the link chopsaw provided from  there I think.

Uh, I haven't but God bless you for doing this!

Thank you both. I am going to use this now. I will let you know how this turns out.

How long have you been using Chief?,.. if you don't mind me asking.

 

Would you happen to know where I can purchase trees from, aside from Chiefs 3D Library?

Thanks in advance.

Absolutely,

 

That is getting pretty specific.  You may want to start a new thread that is appropriately titled for that topic. Also if you want high or low resolution 2D or 3D and for use in Chief I am assuming.

Almost 10 years now, but about 2 years full time. No ideas about trees beyond what others have suggested. Good luck though.

Yes, I have found just about everything that I needed in 3d trees in sketchup 3d warehouse. Although at first I was frustrated I could not find anything until I realized I was

searching in the furniture section. Once I changed it to all I celebrated.

 

Also, I attempted the Sailboat railing and figured out how to do it. I would like to say thank you for everyone that jumped in to help steer me in the right direction.

Especially "Chiefuserthomasw".
