Changing .skp Files to .ini Files/Sketch UP to CURA

Recommended Posts


My name is Seth. I recently was using .skp files on Sketch Up. I wanted to change my file from .skp to .ini and back. I really just want to know if this is possible now.

If not...no harm done. I will just have to start using my Printrbot Simple (1403) with CURA. Let me just ask this question first. Does CURA use .ini files? If someone out there knows the answer to this question, please contact me via this feed.

Okay...that is about it. I hope everyone is doing well tonight. Good luck and Godspeed.

I also know from recent experience that you can export models in Wavefront .OBJ format, without the need for third party plugins (Pro version, I don't know if the free version does).

Cura supports OBJ too.

p.s. I hope you're aware that while Sketchup makes great looking visualizations, they are not necessarily suitable for 3D printing. It isn't just a matter of file format, it's a question of the file (in whatever storage format) describing a watertight solid model.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
