SketchUp for 3D Printing

In this online course, you'll learn how to use SketchUp® to model several projects that can be sent to a 3D printer. The five projects, which increase in complexity, are a customized phone case that starts with a downloaded model, a small house with a matching roof, a sports logo keychain, a stand-up animal toy with two interacting parts and, finally, a bunk bed that can stack with identical beds and works with Lego® blocks. You'll also learn best practices while modeling, how to check for watertightness, and how to print a whole or partial model. After the completion of each project, an additional video will show some suggestions for similar projects you can try, which build upon the skills you just learned.
