Teaching in an elementary school, we’ve been designing in SketchUp for years and printing kids’ files. We switched to SketchUp for Schools last year. I have been loving it, especially the inclusion of Solid Inspector.
I have a 5th grader who completed assignments and went home and built his own Millenium Falcon. I was not able to guide him with grouping sections or checking solid inspector along the way. The end result is a sweet looking design with a LOT of errors. I’m also assuming the file is so big or corrupt? that we are having issues loading, exporting, and downloading. Specifically, when I try and export as an .stl file I get the error, “An error occurred while creating the STL file.” When I try and download the file I get the error, " An error occurred while downloading the model." I can open and modify the file. sometimes the file ‘freezes’ and I have to reload the webpage. First time I’ve ever had this issue. We build and I review hundreds of files yearly on my MacBook Pro.
Short of having him start over, does anyone have suggestions of what I could do? I no longer have a desktop version of SketchUp. I was hoping to try and get the .stl file so I could at least see what would print.
