After designing a rough set using Google SketchUp I wanted to see if I could use the design to make a physical card model. I couldn’t find a way to export the flat surfaces to another program (I was using the free version of Google SketchUp which has less options) but I did find a way of printing in the correct scale.
Printing all the surfaces was a little time consuming as I had to isolate each wall by hiding all the additional components I didn’t want to print. However, after everything was printed I found it easy to build the model, which already had a lot more detail than the first white card model I made. You can see the first model in an earlier post here.
