Hi, this site has immediatly got me interested to see what could be created, and i have always wondered why some starships are not turned into models,so i looked at how to export models to shapeways from google sketchup, but sadly i do not have the programs needed to do it
if you have the programs in this tutorial: http://www.shapeways.com/tutorials/sketchup_3d_printing_expo rt_to_stl_tutorial
then your help in this would be greatly appreciated,
there are in total 7 models that i would like to be exported,
if you are interested in doing this, please contact me at:
i'll email you the files for you to export
(im not sure how to put a file in the post, if there is a way then please say and i shall to save time =) )

If you read STEP 1 again on the tutorial you refer to, you wil see there are links for the software you require. Meshlab is free. there is another program which is free http://netfabb.com/basic.php
Plus you can upload a DAE file from Sketchup.
Maximum filesize: 64 MB. Supported filetypes: DAE, OBJ, STL, X3D, X3DB, X3DV, WRL, ZIP. ZIP may contain all supported 3d files and textures. Textures files(GIF, JPG, PNG) are only available for color uploads(WRL,X3D,X3DB, X3DV files).
