Using Sketchup to create files for Carbide Create


(Richard Hensley) #1

I’m a furniture maker and have been using Sketchup for some time. Is there a way to use my skp file to port over to Carbide Create for tooling?

Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

There are a couple of options listed here: https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Commercial_Software#3D_CAD

One notable option is to export to a .stl, repair the mesh if need be, then use a 3D CAM program.

Thanks Will, I’ve actually started working on learning Fusion360. That will fix my issue.
