Push/Pull tool introduction

Use the Push/Pull tool to push and pull Face entities to add volume to or subtract volume from your models. You can use push/pull to create volume out of any face type, including circular, rectangular, and abstract faces. Activate the Push/Pull tool from the Tool Palette (Mac OS X), the Modification Toolbar (Microsoft Windows) or the Tools menu.

Keyboard Shortcut: P



Note: Push/Pull works only on faces, and therefore does not work when SketchUp is set to a Wireframe rendering style.
