I’m sure this has been asked but I can’t find it anywhere. I have a google sketchup drawing and would like to link it into my blog and/or the forum. How do I go about doing this?

You would need the file hosted on your own page or similar file sharing site and then use the “link” button as usual and it ques you for the web address.

by the way…formatting is explained in the “show formatting refrences” located on any page above the text box where you enter text to post for forums or blogs.

I don’t have a site myself but I discovered that if I export it to a 2D drawing I can host it on photobucket. Thanks for the help, if I ever need the full version I guess I will have to find a site to host it.

My ISP gives me a small amount of ftp web content space with my DSL internet package that I store some photos on. Photobucket is quirky. You might check with your internet service provider to see if they give you an ftp site.

You could also upload the file to SU 3D warehouse perhaps and link to that.

another option to privately hosting the .skp file is to create an account (FREE) with google (unless you already have one) and upload your model/drawing to Sketchups 3DWarehouse -then you can link to your model there and people can download it. or if you don’t want 3Dwarehouse – you can host it on google docs and share it or similar hosting services (yahoo has one as well)... you get the picture.

I’ll look into the Google thing that sounds like a good idea. Thanks PurpLev
