I am very much new to Skeptchup and have been having some trial and error runs with it and followed a few tutorials to get the basics under my belt. I own a business and we manufacture pet products.
I am in the textile industry manufacturing pet bedding.
Ultimately i got Sketchup to draw products i manufacture / would like to manufacture in 3D to see how it will look then be able to break it up into pieces that are 2D that i can add things like lineup marks and sewing allowance to, then have it made into a template and produce them.
I have essentially drawn one product in 3D, then broken it up into the three pieces i need to make a template into but i am not sure how to “flatten” them into 2D so i can send a scale drawing to my graphics guy who can router cut my pattern.
I would greatly appreciate any assistance/pointers in doing this.
