How do I change the angle of a sun in SketchUp?

How can you adjust the intensity of the sun in the shadows window?

The Dark slider controls the shadow’s intensity. With this option, you can lighten or darken areas under shade or shadows. When the Use Sun for Shading checkbox is selected, SketchUp’s simulated sun shades parts of your model even if shadows are toggled off.

What angle is acute?

Acute angles measure less than 90 degrees. Right angles measure 90 degrees. Obtuse angles measure more than 90 degrees.

What tools would you use to create accurate shadows in a 3D building model?

Orbit, zoom, and pan around until you have a good view of the part of your project you want to study. Choose Window→Shadows to open the Shadow Settings dialog box. Select the Show/Hide Shadows button to turn on SketchUp’s sun. Make sure the time zone setting is correct for your location.

What angle is the sun at noon?

At the equator, 0 degrees latitude, the sun angle at noon at the equinox is 90 — 0 = 90 degrees, or directly overhead.
