Welcome to SketchUp-to-DXF-STL

It's a SketchUp Ruby plugin that adds STL (STereoLithography) and AutoCAD DXF file export formats

Installing the plugin

The latest version and full installation instructions are available from http://www.guitar-list.com/download-software/convert-sketchup-skp-files-dxf-or-stl

To install the plugin you can either download the file "skp_to_dxf.rb" to your Sketchup plugins folder (the location of which depends which version of Sketchup you're using) or make a zipped version of the "skp_to_dxf.rb" file and rename it "skp_to_dxf.rbz" and install via the Sketchup menus (Preferences > Extensions > Install Extension) - for more details or to download the zipped version go to http://www.guitar-list.com/download-software/convert-sketchup-skp-files-dxf-or-stl

Using the plugin

After copying this file, start Sketchup and you should now have an extra menu options (Export to DXF or STL) in the Sketchup Tools and File-export menu.

There are five export options:

STL  triangles. Use this for Makerbot or Reprap style 3D printers
DXF polyface mesh. This will give the most faithful reproduction of your original Sketchup model.
DXF polylines: exports the outlines of each face as a polyline, sometimes useful for CAM toolpaths.
DXF triangular mesh: breaks all the faces up into triangles
DXF lines. This option exports the edges in your model as lines.
