    I assume that downloading your jpeg and importing it into sketchup is cheating...

    Looks fun. I'll have to give this one a try when I get a bit of spare "noodling" time.

    Hi Shaz!

    I'm not sure I've ever heard that phrase before. Receed in thickness of shadow? - I don't wanna say it don't and find out that it does.

    Jason, that's good approach. I did it a bit differently.

    When I was working on this originally, I had an opening of known size and the grille was specified as per the dimensions shown in the image. I started out with the square component in the center of the opening (shown in dark green) and copied it out so it ran over the edges of the opening in all directions. Then the edge components were made unique so they could be trimmed. the corners were also made unique. The seam lines on all mating edges were hidden and the abutting faces were deleted.

    I thought for sure you used another ruby to make that. I think I remember seeing one somewhere.

    Why would anyone need a Ruby for that? It's dead simple.
