Print a Thing extension made 3D printing easier

SketchUp is an essential tool in 3D printing and SketchUp Extension warehouse is full of tools; among them, the Print a Thing extension made the 3D printing techniques easier.

SketchUp or Google SketchUp is mainly a3D modeling computer program that is used for a broad range of drawing applications used by architects, interior designer, landscape architects, civil and mechanical engineers, film and video game designers also. The Extension Warehouse of SketchUp is full of useful tools which are used in various 3D models to make the work attractive.

Extension Warehouse: It is an online resource with various plug-ins developed made especially for SketchUp and these extensions help to add some special tools and features to SketchUp. These extensions can be found for any particular application like drawing or 3D printing and some industry specified tools for architecture, interior design, construction and many more. So basically in this Extension Warehouse people can do the following things:

• Users can search extensions by name or as per the functionality.
• They can also install various extensions with a single click of a button.
• Or users can also control all the extensions from easy-to-use location in the My Extension page.

About Print a Thing: Print a Thing extension helps users to get an instant quote and 3D Print of the models with just a few clicks. This extension allows users to easily upload their works into the Print a Thing 3D Printing service for an instant quote, faster turn around and high quality prints. This extension also allows them to utilize a distributed network of quality 3D printers across the United States. SketchUp designers want to change the world for better through their technology and 3D printing is a way to see the world; that’s why they are trying to keep the 3D printing reasonable, simple, easier and communicable so that anyone can use it anywhere for any purpose. Print a Thing is released in a hope that it would be a positive force for startups, beginners and professionals both can do it themselves

“Surface Imperfection Maps in VRay to create Realistic materials in SketchUp ”

This article is about the using method of surface imperfection maps to add realism on the rendered materials within VRay for SketchUp which Justin Geis has shown through a tutorial video. Here are some details about this Surface Imperfection and its use in SketchUp.

Surface Imperfection maps are very high quality textures which are scanned from real surfaces. These maps are not like traditional scatter textures but are scans of the delicate imperfections that are shared by most materials. The resulting grayscale maps can be used as glossiness, bump, anisotropy and reflective maps for adding those imperfections back into any 3D material.

Justin Geis: Justin Geis is the founder of The SketchUp Essentials and started using SketchUp while he was working as a general contractor in 2008 and after using it he found that SketchUp is extremely powerful that he just started to use it in his personal works also. Then he started The SketchUp Essentials as a place where he could share his ideas of using SketchUp easily through some tutorials and tips to help other users controlling the power of 3D Modeling in everyday lives.

About Extension Warehouse: It is an online resource with various plug-ins developed made especially for SketchUp and these extensions help to add some special tools and features to SketchUp. These extensions can be found for any particular application like drawing or 3D printing and some industry specified tools for architecture, interior design, construction and many more. So basically in this Extension Warehouse people can do the following things:

  • Users can search extensions by name or as per the functionality.
  • They can also install various extensions with a single click of a button.
  • Or users can also control all the extensions from easy-to-use location in the My Extension page.

This time Justin Geis has used maps from the website called Poliigon.com; the textures in this tutorial are all free textures which can be used in the renderings; Poliigon also has a paid option with access for many materials. One of the other map types has Poliigon is the surface imperfection map which is designed to apply with the other materials from poliigon to use them. In real life, materials are rarely perfect as in the renderings so in maps they can be used to add a little realistic feel to the renders. Justin has downloaded and used the free Smudged Large texture; he also created a material for the texture and applied surface imperfection map to the opacity section under color correction. This option allowed them to drive the opacity of the material as it is basically see-through material except for the Smudged areas. The power of the brightness can be adjusted later to change the power of effect; next they created a 3D material and the type of this one allows to blend multiple materials together. While creating a 3D material blend there will be an option to add a base material to create a wonderful texture.

“Medeek Wall in SketchUp Extension”

The Meedek Wall Plugin is another one from SketchUp Extension Warehouse that provides a simple interface to create accurate 3D Wall framing geometry within SketchUp.

About Extension Warehouse: It is an online resource with various plug-ins developed made especially for SketchUp and these extensions help to add some special tools and features to SketchUp. These extensions can be found for any particular application like drawing or 3D printing and some industry specified tools for architecture, interior design, construction and many more. So basically in this Extension Warehouse people can do the following things:

  • Users can search extensions by name or as per the functionality.
  • They can also install various extensions with a single click of a button.
  • Or users can also control all the extensions from easy-to-use location in the My Extension page.

About Meddek Wall (BETA): The Medeek Wall Plugin is another SketchUp Plugin that provide a simple interface to create accurate 3D wall framing geometry within SketchUp. This plugin also uses the SketchUp Ruby API programming interface and is consistent with the newest SketchUp versions like SketchUp Make 2017 and SketchUp Pro 2018 as well as earlier versions like 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Currently the plugin allows the making of the following types or panels of wall which are in Metric and US/Imperial:

Rectangle (Ext-Int), Rectangle (Int-Int), Gable and Shed.

  • Door types in Rectangle: Solid, Six panel, Half Glass, Full Glass, Double Solid, Double Six Panel, Double Half Glass, Double Full Glass
  • Window types in Rectangle and Half Round: Picture, Slider, Single Hung
  • Garage Doors: Under Construction
  • Columns in Wall: Dimensional Lumber and Timbers, Parallel Strand Lumber
  • Pre-Fabricated Shear Panels: Simpson Strong-tie Wood Strong Wall®, Simpson Strong-tie Steel Strong Wall®, Mitek Hardy Frame® HFX Panel.
  • Engineering(US/Imperial): It is under construction

All these wall types are designed using industry standard practices, there are some other wall types for doors and windows which are in the process to add on weekly basis. Some Advanced options and features like crown moulding, baseboard, chair rails and wainscoting are also now under development. So basically this plugin allows users to create wall panels in a polyline mode; after selecting the rectangular wall tool and choosing the line mode, the wall is then defined by selecting two points from the start to end of the wall panel. After choosing this polyline mode each point defines a wall panel end point and the next wall panel starts point, when the auto-corner configuration is allowed within the global settings the wall panels will automatically form inside or outside corners as per the angles between the wall panels. When the wall panel is created then it can be moved while at the same time

remaining fixed to other adjacent wall panels; wall framing with other options are automatically re-calculated and re-drawn. This automation will provide a design tool that will reduce the need for manual modifications to the model; custom layers can be enabled in the global settings to allow various walls, window and door components to be placed on specific layers.

The Medeek Wall Plugin thus help users to accurately depict conventional wood frame construction will fully integrated windows and doors within SketchUp and better confirm the architectural models.

“Eight new components to Rock the School Year: SketchUp for Schools”

SketchUp for Schools has started a year ago where the creators have started to put some information to manage SketchUp tools for students and teachers they are adding features now.

SketchUp for Schools: It is a free 3D modeling browser application which is available to any primary or secondary school that has signed up with G-suite for Education. This is the first time SketchUp ever offered an education-specific product and SketchUp team has taken the view of users and their EDU community about the classes. SketchUp management are bringing SketchUp for Schools out of beta just in time for the school year and after an wonderful Summer of sifting through many positive feedback the team has brought the two most needed features: STL exploring for 3D printing and SketchUp curriculum. So SKetchUp for Schools also offering age-definite curriculum attached to the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards and also the curriculum is made by Teachers like Mike and Mike.

Last year, the SketchUp for Schools had started various classes to teach the students about SketchUp and people gave feedback which helped them to make improvements so that students and educators can use it more smoothly in 3D. So, this year they are again bringing SketchUp for Schools with new improvements, let’s check them out.

Better 3D printing functionality: After SketchUp for Schools launched, SketchUp has come in now Chromebooks and then they have added a couple more features to make the 3D printing experience better. The features are:

Solid Inspector:

It is the web-child of Solid Inpector2 and is ranked number 1 extension to prepare models for 3D printing on SketchUp’s Extension Warehouse. It is located on the right side of the new 3D printing panel.

3D Printing Guide:

3D printing guide is a complete guidance package consisting with three new lesson plans and these plans are now delivered in Google Slides. They all can be found either on the Web or directly in the SketchUp for Schools application.

Solid Tools:

Solid tools have different kind of tools which are Outer Shell, Union, Subtract, Trim, Intersect and Split. All these features are very useful to create cool geometry and can also help in preparing any model for 3D printing.

STL import:

There are many exciting Thingiverse models in the SketchUp for Schools application which students will love to play around with and it is as easier as exporting to STL.

Better 3D printing functionality: The team also added more of SketchUp’s desktop functionality to SketchUp for schools and here are those new features:

Style Editor:

It allows users to create own custom styles or to edit one of SketchUp’s many default styles.

Downsave .skp files to 2016 or 2017:

SketchUp team has added the ability to downsave the files of users’ while working on any earlier version of SketchUp Pro in Desktop so that they can work between SketchUp for Schools on the Chromebook and SketchUp Pro on the desktop.

Importers & Exporters:

Last year, the most popular exporters were used in primary and secondary schools: in both STL and PNG. So, this year they have added a lot more exporters so that students can flex their creative skills on the last cutter, image editing software and other 3D modeling tools.

Material Editor:

Users can give their own unique touch in the SketchUp’s material library by editing material fuzziness.

“FredoCorner is the new SketchUp extension”

Fredo6 has released their new extension named FredoCorner which is an upgrade version of previous RoundCorner that become now a paid version to work in the corners and splits.

Justin Geis: Justin Geis is the founder of The SketchUp Essentials and started using SketchUp while he was working as a general contractor in 2008 and after using it he found that SketchUp is extremely powerful that he just started to use it in his personal works also. Then he started The SketchUp Essentials as a place where he could share his ideas of using SketchUp easily through some tutorials and tips to help other users controlling the power of 3D Modeling in everyday lives.

About Extension Warehouse: It is an online resource with various plug-ins developed made especially for SketchUp and these extensions help to add some special tools and features to SketchUp. These extensions can be found for any particular application like drawing or 3D printing and some industry specified tools for architecture, interior design, construction and many more. So basically in this Extension Warehouse people can do the following things:

  • Users can search extensions by name or as per the functionality.
  • They can also install various extensions with a single click of a button.
  • Or users can also control all the extensions from easy-to-use location in the My Extension page.

FredoCorner is a new extension from Fredo6 designed to help the users in generating rounded corners or edges within SketchUp; this extension is as similar as the old RoundCorner extension, but it creates rounded edges with an improved algorithm and also has added some new tools. It works in stripping of edges and corners of 3D shapes, in 3D modes: Round, Bevel and Subdivision Mesh; this tool also has a Repair tool to undo any kind of generated shape rounding. But it doesn’t exchange the old RoundCorner extension and remains supported as it will become a paid plugin after a 2-3 month free period.

FredoCorner is placed on a different algorithm and has many additional features, like:

  • Handling more difficult shapes with triangulation at vertices
  • Subdivision mesh
  • Repair/ Undo/ Redo
  • Preview mode
  • Asymmetrical offset
  • Variable offset with borders
  • Works across boundaries of groups and Components
  • Corners are symmetrical
  • Edible corner profiles with Squrcles and Bezier
  • More types of corner geometrics are supported

New functions of FredoCorner:

  • It is may be the biggest change within FedoCorner as it is opposed to RoundCorner where the corners are all balanced and they can be edited with the Profile Rounding Function; this tool allows users to adjust the way of creating rounded curves with FredoCorner.
  • This new upgraded tool also offers the ability for reversing the curves that allow creating corners which move both inward and outward.
  • This extension can also handle much more difficult corners now than previous did in RoundCorner.
  • There is a new preview button added which helps users to quickly view the created geometry with the look without creating it.
  • Besides that, it also allows live editing the curves by clicking and dragging with preview mode active.
  • The offset line lengths can also be edited now by clicking on them and adding a new value; users can offset individual lines or full offset by double clicking.
  • The major thing is that users can now select a group or component and active FredoCorner without editing the raw geometry.
  • There is also a subdivide function that allows to split object into squads that allows users to use an extension like SubD or Artisan to subdivide the shapes without any deformation.

SketchUp or Google SketchUp is mainly a3D modeling computer program that is used for a broad range of drawing applications used by architects, interior designer, landscape architects, civil and mechanical engineers, film and video game designers also. SketchUp can be getting as a freeware version named SketchUp Make and a paid version with many more extra benefits called SketchUp Pro. SketchUp is software from Trimble Company and there is an online library of free model congregations and 3D Warehouse to which users can add other models; besides that, the program has drawing layout functionality with variable ‘styles’, supports third-party ‘plug-in’ programs hosted on the Extension Warehouse to supply other abilities and enables placement of its models in Google Earth. As SketchUp users are most of architects, designers, builders, makers and engineers etc. who works hard to give a nice shape to our physical world, they need great tools to do the work. SketchUp is in mission to bring their best to produce some great tools for drawing as drawing is the key thing of the SketchUp users. They draw to search ideas, to identify the things and to show other people their work that they do with love and love to build; SketchUp understands it truly and trying to improve their software day by day. SketchUp is a worth useful software for its ease of use, it can be downloaded or installed o computer and right after that user can work on it. Though SketchUp can easily handle but still there are some sides where people will find some difficulties and lots of solve also are there like YouTube tutorials upon SketchUp or visiting SketchUp website or search Google etc. But people will get confused to have lots of information from different places upon one thing so there should a proper place or website where all the answers can be found.

“Design parts in SketchUp to connect for 3D printing”

SketchUp models are suitable for 3D printing but it only can happen when the parts of any model are assembled together, there are different ways to assemble those parts.

In the previous tutorials of Sketch Up, Aidan and Rebecca have shown us the way to cut Sketch Up model into parts but the matter is now to assemble them in a way for printing them. There are many other strategies and features in SketchUp like mechanical or else to help in building into the model to assemble the parts together. Aidan and Rebecca are going to show the users through different processes and here is a brief discussion on it.

Tolerance in SketchUp: It is the difference between the sizes of users’ part in SketchUp and the size of the part produced by their 3D printer. Suppose a user has drawn a 10mm cube in SketchUp and printed it, none of the sizes of the printed cube will be shown exactly 10mm; though these are very small differences like a few tenths of a millimeter more r less. But they can create problems if their 3D printed parts have to connect with the parts that already exist in the real world. That’s why the manufacturer of the 3D printers gives a unique number for the machine’s tolerance which may be in either plus or minus value. This value is called the Maximum variation for that machine and users both need to be aware while working.

Tolerance in SketchUp: Clearance is like an extra space for parts to slide past one another but users may face a little difficulty while installing similar size peg in a similar sized hole as they will not go together. The peg and the hole will not fit properly with each other in SketchUp but in real world they will not react like this as there the peg needs to connect with friction. The exterior of the peg is similar as the exterior of the hole that the friction between them will keep the peg from veer going in if the fit is too perfect for them. In that case, users need to add a small amount of space called clearance which will help the two parts to slide past each other; the amount of clearance depends on the exact movement of the part.

Glue in SketchUp: Glue is the universal way to stick things but it is also the weakest and most unreliable way as it has very little strength o keep the things tighter for long.

  • The plastics which are used in 3D prints defined by the names ABS, PLA, PVA, nylon and PETT; all these plastics need a special glue to stick and the glues have to order online.
  • Biodegradable starch plastics consists a crystalline structure that doesn’t go well with liquid superglue which stays liquid and move unexpectedly across the surface of the part.
  • Instead of glue, users can use epoxy which is though a messy stuff but will stick to anything.
  • No glue can stick to the flexible materials for 3D printers so to attach parts, a process called thermal welding.

Snap fittings in SketchUp: These are properly designed to pop the models together after the parts come off the printer and as these are removable so users can change out many parts of the model as per design. In SketchUp, snap fittings are created by two general steps: 1) creating the tongue with the Line and Push/Pull tools; 2) creating a matching capture point on the opposing part.

Press Fit in SketchUp: A press fit is the very little clearance between the two parts while designing and when the parts are pressed together forcibly, friction keeps the joint together without any extra hardware or glue. To make a press fit, the Offset tool is used to create an outer lip on one side of the connection and an inner lip on other side.

Bolts, Screws and Hardware in SketchUp: The strongest connection between 3D printed parts is holding together with metal hardware and these connections are great for things that are more than just prototypes. While integrating hardware into the design, include hardware in the SketchUp model as it will take measurements of the parts users need to use and model them in SketchUp. Then save the components in the component library for using them in further models.

“Highlights of some amazing 3D Printed Projects in 2019”

The 3D printing technology allows any kind of design to be brought to life which releases architects from the limitations of standard construction.

3D printing or additive manufacturing is way of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital life. The creation or making of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes and in this process, an object is made by laying down successive layers of material till the object is created. Each of these layers can be visible as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. So basically 3D printing is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing which is cutting out a piece of metal or plastic with for specimen a milling machine.

SketchUp is just made for 3D printing and designing in SketchUp is cool as 3D printing is something that moves is cooler and unique than that. In this article we are going to discuss about a few features that can be include by the users to make their creations more than just interestingly shaped hunks of immobile plastic. Aidan Chopra and Rebecca Huehls this time comes up with new tricks about 3D printing in SketchUp.

SketchUp or Google SketchUp is owned by Trimble Inc., a mapping, surveying and navigation company. It is mainly a 3D modeling computer program that is used for a broad range of drawing applications used by architects, interior designer, landscape architects, civil and mechanical engineers, film and video game designers also.

3D printing technology has changed many industries globally and among them most impact can be seen on Construction industry which offers freedom and versatility in a right budget. This article will describe four new 3D Printed projects in 2019 among Construction industry.

Most of the companies that use 3D printed program in construction are startups businesses are still in their developing phase though the number of countries using 3D technology is growing every day. Dubai is the leader of those countries where the most famous and luxurious UAE city has started a new structure that will be going to be built by using 3D technology.

  • Project Milestone: This is based in Eindhoven (the Netherlands), the engineers of Netherlands are planning to build five 3D printed concrete homes; this unique project makes them the first commercial housing project using 3D technology. Where the homes will be of new ages, having all kind of comforts etc.
  • Apis Cor: It is a startup which is located in San Francisco made a demonstration of its own 3D technology by creating a house in Stupino, Russia in 2016. Their technology is versatile and mobile as they printed the whole home on site to cut the transport expense. In future they are expecting to make homes using dual extrusion that will allow printing components other than the concrete structure. Recently the company has collaborated with SEArch+ and entered the “3D Printed Habitat Challenge”, a contest organized by NASA.
  • New Story: It is a nonprofit located in Texas who has partnered with Icon which is a company that creates printers, robotics and advanced materials to work on affordable housing solutions.
  • WinSun: WinSun created its first houses in 2013 using the first continuous 3D printer; they used a special mixture made of sand, cement and fibre along with suitable additions to print house components layer by layer in their Suzhou factory in China.
