I use SketchUp for Schools in my classes.
But when children make someting for 3D printing it takes a lot of time and knowledge to check:
- bad edges, shells, reversed faced, etc.
When I use Sketchup Make or Pro, I let solid inspector do most of the work.
But you can’t put pluginns in SketchUp for schools, as far as I know.
Is there a way you can easily check the model you created before 3D printing?
Is this something you can increase?
And I have a real problem too.
When my pupils create something, I open this in my own SketchUp 2018 (pro) version, wich we have as a company. There I can run solid inspector and make the prints easily ready.
But I also teach other teachers how to print in 3D. They can’t efford to buy sketchup pro every year. Sketchup make 2017 is the last free version they can download on their computer.
But now i concluded that it isn’nt posible anymore to open files from SketchUp for Schools in the last SketchUp Make version.
So they can never use SketchUp Make to check the prints of their students.
