Card Model from SketchUp Design

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.

  1. Hello there! This article could not be written much better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I will send this post to him.
    Pretty sure he’ll have a great read. Thank you for sharing!
