My skill level for modeling with SketchUp is intermediate while my 3d printing is very basic. At this point I am just exporting my files from SketchUp and sending them to ShapeWays.
My shop contains mostly Festool equipment which uses the metric system for settings. I am currently modeling and printing setup blocks in metric sizes so I can complete my setup for each project faster.
I am not very artistic, so most of my printing/modeling has been for industrial type parts.
I have been modeling in SketchUp and sending my files to ShapeWays. I am trying to evaluate the cost benefit of purchasing a 3d printer. I am an ERP consultant by day and a woodworker on the weekends.
