How Do You Bend a Wall in Sketchup?

Have you ever wondered how to bend a wall in Sketchup? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, I will guide you through the steps to achieve this effect. So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Drawing the Wall

To begin, we need to draw a straight wall. Select the Line tool from the toolbar and click on two points to create a straight line. Keep in mind that this line will act as the base for our curved wall.

Step 2: Creating the Curve

Now that we have our straight line, it’s time to bend it. Select the Push/Pull tool from the toolbar and click on the straight line. Pull it upwards or downwards to create the desired height of your curved wall.

Note: If you want to create a concave curve, pull the line downwards. If you prefer a convex curve, pull it upwards.

Step 3: Smoothing the Curve

Your curved wall may appear segmented at this stage. To achieve a smoother look, select the Eraser tool from the toolbar and carefully erase some of the segments by clicking on them.


  • You can hold down Shift while erasing to remove multiple segments at once.
  • If you accidentally erase more than you intended, simply press Ctrl+Z (Windows) or Command+Z (Mac) to undo your action.

Step 4: Adding Detailing

To make your curved wall more visually appealing, consider adding some detailing elements such as windows or doors. These details will enhance its overall look and feel.


To add windows, select the Rectangle tool from the toolbar and draw rectangles where you want them to appear on your curved wall. Then, use the Push/Pull tool to extrude them.


Similarly, to add doors, use the Rectangle tool to draw a rectangle on your curved wall. Then, extrude it using the Push/Pull tool.

Step 5: Applying Materials

Now that you have your curved wall with added detailing, it’s time to apply materials to make it visually engaging. To do this:

  1. Select the Paint Bucket tool from the toolbar.
  2. Click on a material in the Materials panel to apply it to your curved wall. You can choose from various textures like wood, brick, or concrete.
  3. Click on different faces of your curved wall to apply different materials if desired.


  • To adjust the scale of a material, select it in the Materials panel and use the Scale tool from the toolbar.
  • If you want your materials to look more realistic, consider adjusting their brightness or adding reflections using rendering plugins or advanced software like V-Ray.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to bend a wall in Sketchup. By following these steps and incorporating detailing elements and materials, you can create visually stunning and realistic curved walls for your Sketchup projects!
