I wanted to create a short tutorial on using SketchUp for beginners. I’m personally a complete newbie at 3D Printing so i wanted to show how easy it is to make simple objects for yourself and print them out on your Ultimaker! This short guide shows you the basics in SketchUp through to loading the object into Cura to print it.
In The Classroom
This resource provides a simple 3 lesson mini-project to introduce Sketchup and 3D printing. In this project students will learn how to use the basic Sketchup tools, then they will design and 3D print their own keyring. The PDF resource provides learning objectives for each lesson along with a series of step-by-step slides. Display the PDF on your classroom display screen or print/provide a link to students to allow them to view it in their own time.
