Drawing laminated plywood sculpture

I would like to model some plywood sculptures and want to show the layers and make shapes for each layer or shape it as a whole.can I do that in sketch up?If so how?

Perhaps a better description of “plywood sculptures” would enable others to help.
A picture would be a good way to start.


This isn’t mine, but what I’d like to model on sketch-up,get a basic shape of the parts and a count of layers.There are other designs I’d like to make too on the same needs.[

Yes you can do that quite easily.
You model the shape you want then simply slice it.
There is a Plugin by Tig called Slicer that lets you specify the thickness of ‘wood’ and slices automatically.
It will even layout the slices flat for you and export to .dxf files.
