3D Design for Laser with Google Sketchup

This class will teach you techniques for designing objects with 3D panel based construction using Google/Trimble Sketchup. For the purposes of the class, I'll be walking you through creating a design for a cell phone holder for your bicycle. The techniques discussed work well with cardboard, acrylic, wood, plywood, and other panel type materials.

  • Beginner class, and only basic computer skills are required.
  • Hands on drafting. Please bring a laptop with Trimble Sketchup 8 installed (the free version, available at http://www.sketchup.com/). A mouse with a scroll wheel is also highly recommended.
  • We will also be using the free sketchup-dxf-stl-exporter plugin available at (https://github.com/NB70/sketchup-dxf-stl-exporter). I will talk you through installing this during the class.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
