SketchUp Prototyping


I am new here so hopefully I’m posting in the right category. I’ve just found your software and hoping that there are some sort of tutorials on how to make a product prototype; specifically a backpack!

Thanks a lot,


There is a tutorials link on the Help Center landing page:

You’d need to be more specific. Most people (these days) think of 3D printing prototypes in plastic.

Not likely. But it depends upon what type. Many users use SketchUp for piping process or conduit design,… so a tubular backpack frame would be similar.

A few users have thought about using SketchUp for garment design, but I’m not sure how well they have fared.
