Howdy, ya’ll !
I am currently using sketchup for modeling 3D printing. I’ve played with sketchup for several years,. but now I’m interested in duplicating my creations.
The question that I have is : Is there anything that I need to know about 3D printing modeling so that the file that I want to print will be ready for printing?
The modeled parts that I will be making are similar to parts of a model airplane that many of us put together as kids. These parts, however model houses., Walls, siding of a variety of textures (ship-lap, logs, shingles, batten-board, etc, and roofing shingles, dormers, chimneys of a variety of stones and bricks etc. Nominally these houses will be about 8" x 12" x 6" and the prototypes are being fabricated out of wood (I’m a woodworker/wood carver), and my models come from the plans that I developed for the houses.
So, there’s the back story, I just need to know how to prepare my model for printing.
Thanks for your help in furthering this project.
