Inspired by Ben Gatien’s You Tube tutorial on how to design a laser cut box on Sketchup I downloaded the trial version today and had a play.
One of my first project when I get my Glowforge will be rubber stamps, and I have been mulling over a way to make the stamp holder, rather than buying blanks. Sketchup seemed the ideal way to test out my idea. I first drew the objects in Illustrator, then imported them into Sketchup as a .dxf file.
I then extruded them and created the model below. I also did a quick and dirty render using a free Sketchup plugin called Visualiser.
