Hi everyone,

Like the title says, I was hoping someone can give me a rundown on how to import my Sketchup models with color so that they are available to be printed in full color sandstone. I've read somewhere that .STL files don't contain any information regarding colors/textures, so I was hoping to get some guidance on where to go from there to have my models have color.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm still a newbie when it comes to full applications of 3d printing.
