Give drawing a thickness so it can be printed

Hi All,
I’m using Sketchup Make 2017.
I’ve a sketch with lines from a tree and I want to make it solid so I can print it. How do I start? The first I would like to do is giving it a thickness but the scale tool doesn’t work. I don’t want to offset every branch separately. Is there an easy way or plugin that can help?
See example below:

There are some extensions like Lines 2 Tubes and Pipe Along Path that could be used. Both are available from Sketchucation.

BTW, please correct your forum profile. SketchUp 2017 Make is not SketchUp Free (web). And your computer must have some sort of graphics card.

Thanks for the tip but unfortunately it doesn’t seems to work because it is not continuous. See error message:

Try the Lines2Tubes.

So select a continuous path and run the extension. Then select another continuous path and run it again.

Edges don’t have thickness so therefore scaling won’t make them wider…


It works!
Thanks a lot for the fast responses!
