How do I make plans using Google sketchup?


Hi guys,

Would any of you know how I can make 2D f3p plans from google sketchup or any cad program for that matter? I'm new to all these 3D software and I was wondering if anyone could help me out. thanks!

I just copied a well-known design.

You can use ScaleAndTile3, as well as some other programs, to scale and tile most images/PDFs, presenting the output as PDF.

Cheers,

Right click the above image and save file: Name.jpg
Now in Sketchup, click File, then go down to import,
Import the jpg image and you can scale it to the size needed.
Then I use the sketchup ruler to measure and transfer that to the foam by hand. (I'm out of printer ink atm).

*Note Sketchup 8 can't import dxf in the free version anymore, and I haven't found a good free solution to import pdf's either.

I exported it to pdf so you don't have to mess with pixelated lines.

Hope you guys enjoy. This is my first model ever with sketchup or any 3d software for that matter. Heck, I don't even really know how to use photoshop. I apologize if the tabs don't fit, they should, but I've yet to print out the plan and check to see that they do.

Cheers!

ScaleAndTile3 does not apply any sort of protection to its PDF output.
