Once you opened the file, the file will be added to the SketchUp default working page. This working page gives you a clear view of 3D space but it also has a default human figure which you don't rely need. To erase the human figure, first select the figure by clicking on it. Then, click on the "Erase Button" and move it on the the figure. Still, it is hard to see the imported model so click on the button with the magnifying glass icon on the top right. This button allows you to zoom in or zoom out.
Step 3: Softening Edges This option allows you to manipulate the use of softening within your model. More explanation can be found here .... To use this feature, go to "Windows" then select "Soften Edges" and change the angle to get a more soften shape and this feature allows you to hide lines to create a more clear view. Step 4: Creating Vertical Planes and Intersect the Faces with the Model
Now select the line drawing feature to create a rectangular line that can be used as a plane to intersect the figure. Once we have the rectangular figure, click on "Shapes" and then construct "Rectangular" planes.
