Topic tags/keywords: sketchup

maybe i’ve missed it, but it would be great if there were a repository of sketchup plans that LJ’ers use for some of the great projects (and tutorials) that i’ve seen here.

I wish LJ would let you attach sketchup plans to your project page, that would be awesome

You could always submit your model to the Google Repository, and then link it in your project?
I agree, if one doesn’t exist yet, that a place for SketchUp plans free for anyone to use here would be cool.

Google 3dwarehouse is a great repository and you can link to it as well as show your model in 3d on those links. Why reinvent the wheel?

maybe just a socializing a way to tag the file in the warehouse would be good, so i can be found. i’ve no doubt that there is a toolkit from the warehouse such that it could be embedded in LJ’s website.

You can tag your models in 3dwarehouse with key words, so one can tag them with “lumberjocks” or “woodworking” or “joinery” or what not for better search options.

Actually, it looks like you can embed them in here, by using the “Embed” code from the Google 3D Warehouse.

This is not my model, nor do I take any credit for any part of it. It’s just a model I had in my favorites:

EDIT:
you could take just the picture embed option, and when you click on it it links to the repository site, where you can download it:

If I am just referencing a drawing in a post, I usually have to do a screen capture and save it as a .jpg file. Then I can get it to appear in a post.

To store the complete file is another matter. The previous suggestions seem to have a good solution.

It’s also easy to set up a collection on the 3D warehouse. That’s what we did with the Popular Woodworking Magazine collection, and those models are free for anyone to use.

i did a 3dwarehouse search for ‘lumberjock’ and came up with less than a page of actual results. would be fantastic if people used whatever method works for them, so long as they do it.

It looks like you have to be signed in to a google account for my above solution to work…
