Sketchup Extensions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Sketchup Extensions

I use SketchUp Make summarized perhaps 20 hours.

Before that I had never worked with CAD software.

Two objects I've created so that, in this pictures the second object is visible. I am with the result even without plugins satisfied:

LCD Frame 00

LCD Frame 01

LCD Frame 02

LCD Frame 03

LCD Frame 04

LCD Frame 05

It will surely suffice for some time for my needs. Creating simple objects is quite good, but corrections prepare me a headache.

Plug-ins I use none, but am also interested in this. Maybe I'll try an alternative software before I buy plug-ins for SketchUp.

    I have used sketchup for 6yrs but for architectural visualisation . Most of the plugins are free and looking on sketchucation will help. For 3d printing I use solid inspector, remove inner faces and export .stl. I get a lot of models off students to print and nothing will prepare you for how bad somebody can model!!!

    I love sketchup and enjoy the free plugins that are avaliable. I use solid solver, solid inspector, remove inner faces, and round corner, along with a few others I can't think of at the moment. One thing about round corner I find anoying is once you use it you can not use push/pull on the surface any more. So I create my design, make a copy, and round the corners last. This way I can make adjustments in the future.

    I research and download my plugins through Sketchucation a wonderful site for anyone using sketchup. It has loads of great information.

    I use the Sketchup one (embedded in the app) and Sketchucation.

    But both require (free) registration...

    Thank you, that helped me a lot. ;)

    Solid Inspector I have now successfully installed and it makes the work great.

    Above all I could find in my self-created objects, many duplicate surfaces, and was able to eliminate this quickly.

    Solid Solver unfortunately I could not install from inexplicable reason, I'll try later again. I do not know what you can do with this plugin currently, I have yet to find out.

    Knows and uses someone more interesting PlugIns for SketchUp?
