Tim I have purchased you book and the first chapter on setting up sketch up was worth the price of the e book! In addition to following along with your instructional chapters I thought I would strike out on my own to draw a simple "marble game" which poased a modeling challenge. Since the tracks slope downward from one another at 8 degree angle I tried to draw them in Sketch Up, I selected the arc tool for the groove and the push pull tool to remove the waste and all was fine. When I tried to put and 8 degree end cut on each end (which would be a vertical plumb cut on each end once assembled), the model will not draw a solid end with the groove in it (see attached rendering), yet it works fine when the ends are at 90 degrees. I have tried various approaches to remedy it but no luck. Am I missing something simple?
