I’m trying to build an export program DXF for CNC and presently Im using the native export by sketchup. So I’m trying to figure out a way to accomplish this by exporting part by part and should work with CNC software I’m having 2 issues right now:
- My sketchup object (Component) is being rejected by the CNC software because it requires polylines ( observation from a peer ).
- It takes a long time to export multiple object as I have to delete and redo every shape for it to be on a single dxf file (for every component 1 export function is being called).
I saw some simpleDXF exporter but Im have no idea how to accomplish something like that
Sorry edited my post i would like to ask some direction on how i could program an export like that maybe some book.
You need to ask specific coding questions (preferably with a code snippet and sample skp file which shows the challenge the code is attempting to solve.)
I have a pinned series of wiki lists (in this category) to help with learning Ruby (which is a prerequisite) and how the SketchUp API extends Ruby. (If you need to create an interface for the export, you’ll likely need to use the
You should look at the “official” tutorials on how to set up an extension project …
ADD: I think that TIG has published an open source OBJ exporter over at SketchUcation. A DXF exporter would be very similar as both are plain text file formats. Perhaps also there are some open source XML exporters ?
