Step 1: Export SketchUp File to SolidWorks (English)
hello my student, student of infinity projects brazil. here it is his engineer professor Tiago Lourenço Martins.
In this video I will teach you how to open a sketchup file in solidworks,
First we are going to go to an archived qualifier of the site of sketchup to be able to later open non-solidworks, we will not be able to give you a picture
after downloaded we will have to download the extension of sketchup stl from the site, which is in the video description. After installing this extension, we transform the open file (chair) into stl format. This is where we will open it in solidworks. save the file in stl, we will open solidworks to transform into solidworks file, for that we have to change down to stl format, and then click on options, done that we will choose the surface body option, we click ok and ok again.
CONTINUING. THIS STL FORMAT OPENING PROCESS IN SOLIDWORKS TAKES SOME TIME, DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF DRAWING IT IS ADVISED TO SEPARATE IN SEVERAL PARTS OF THE DRAWING WITHIN SKETCHUP, THAT CHAIR HAS DELAYED ABOUT 30 MINUTES
THIS IS THE CHAIR AFTER OPENING IT IN SOLIDWORKS, WE CAN OBSERVE THAT IT HAS VARIOUS FACES, THIS IS WHAT LEAVES THE FILE A LITTLE BUT IT IS POSSIBLE TO REMOVE THE LINES BY RENDERING OR CHANGING THE WAY
IF YOU WANT TO SEE HOW TO EXPORT A HEAVY FILE, IN CASE ONE PERSON. I'M LEAVING A LINK HERE ON VIDEO DESCRIPTION FOR YOU TO SEE HOW TO DO THIS. ON LINK VIDEO YOU WILL LEARN TO EXPORT MORE HEAVY FILES, FOR THIS THERE IS A DIFFERENT TECHNIQUE. Be sure to watch if you want to be an EXPORT EXPERT. NOW IF YOU DON'T WANT TO CLICK THE LINK, JUST ACCESS MY CHANNEL AND ACCESS IT.
IN MY CHANNEL YOU WILL FIND VIDEOS TEACHING SOLIDWORKS, AUTOCAD AND INVENTOR. IN ENGLISH, PORTUGUESE AND SPANISH VERSIONS OF MISCELLANEOUS MATTERS. I WILL ALWAYS BE POSING NEW TUTORIALS TO SHARE THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE WITH YOU FOR FREE
NOW I WILL TEACH LIKE ALL THESE PEOPLE FOR SOLIDWORKS. BUT NOT ONLY THESE BLOCKS, YOU CAN DOWNLOAD MANY PROJECTS I HAVE AND I WILL STILL POST. TO DO THIS IS VERY SIMPLE. YOU JUST CLICK ON THE VIDEO DESCRIPTION LINK, OR SIMPLY FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE I WILL SHOW. FIRST ENTER THE URL OF YOUR BROWSER, WWW.GRABCAD.COM, THEN IF YOU HAVE NO SIGN UP CREATE YOUR LOGIN.
now just type in search, infinity projects brazil, so all my projects will appear for you to download for free
there you will also find my mechatronics engineering tcc that i did in 2013. this tcc which was a 3d printer, has all the parts drawn in the inventor's format. It also has a general assembly file in step format. This way you can open it in any software, including solidworks.
I would like to ask you one more kindness. I know you already liked the video and even subscribed to our channel. but I would like to ask you to also like your project. because it helps me get better ranked on grabcad's site, and so motivates me to create new projects and post for free for you to download.
thank you very much student for attending all our class. I hope I have added new knowledge, see you in the next class, see you soon
