I just downloaded Sketchup Make last Sunday, because I have finally come up with a serious need for 3D printing. I saw opinions that although the design interface was exceptionally intuitive, the program was iffy for exporting STL files. I do love the design interface, but I’ve encountered two problems on my first effort.
1, The person who is making my first 3D print said a higher density would be better. I assume that means the same thing as mesh, and I see no way at all to set the mesh for an STL file in Sketchup.
- My project is just a flat rectangular panel with rectangular and circular holes. So I position a circle or rectangle on the top face, and use Push/Pull to bore the hole. But sometimes the hole just goes to the back surface, and sometimes it pushes right on through, resulting in a cylinder extending out the back side of the panel… I’ve found no way to avoid that problem.
Any answers to these questions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking an interest,
