I’ve been experimenting with 3D printing lately, and found that I need to take a specific approach when modeling things for 3D printing. In this episode, I talk with Marcus Ritland from Denali 3D designs about 3D printing with SketchUp.

If you’ve been thinking about getting started with 3D printing, this podcast episode will give you a good idea as to what it takes to get started.
And you don’t even need to own a 3D printer to have your designs printed.
Marcus Ritland is an expert in 3D printing, and recently wrote the book, “3D printing with SketchUp.”
I’ve read the book and found it to be really helpful. It gave me a ton of great tips throughout the book to make modeling much easier for 3D printing. The book assumes you already know the basics of SketchUp, and builds upon that knowledge to give you specific information about 3D printing.
In this episode, we talk about why SketchUp is such a great tool for 3D printing.
In this episode you’ll learn about
- What is 3D printing?
- What are the advantages to using 3D printing as a manufacturing process?
- What is the workflow for creating a model for printing, then actually printing it out.
- You don’t need to own a 3D printer in order to have your model printed.
- Free tools and plugins you can use to help repair and check your model.
