    We used Marcus’ tips as inspiration to create a new guide: 3D Printing from SketchUp. In the guide, we included a short video tutorial that references a number of Marcus’ tips from the article above. Also, the tutorial shows how to design for eventual printing from Shapeways.

    The guide is a work in progress, so we’d love to hear any feedback!
