Marvin G, the renowned Software developer; hobbyist and woodworker, has developed SVG Face Export – compatible with Shaper Origin. It is a powerful extension to export SVG files from faces.
This sketchup extension is compatible with SketchUp 2016, SketchUp 2017, SketchUp 2018. The extension is suited for wood workers.
This extension can produce an SVG outline from selected faces. The plugin includes a couple operations to the “context menu” (right click) if a face is opted for or to choose the existing face. “Layout SVG profile” convert the face’s internal and external edges onto a newly created group. “Write SVG profile” reforms the edges which are arranged into a SVG file.
The plugin is very effective for creating customized SVG output directly from Sketchup devoid of any other software tools. The extension allow changes, from inside Sketchup, to the layed-out edges to be portrayed in the output SVG. The plugin can also provide support for Shaper Origin “pocket cuts.
The output SVG file is well suited with the Shaper Origin handheld CNC router as well as other applications requiring SVG output.
