how do I post sketchup of my ideas for scrutiny?


Standard Member
I've done a sketchup (eventually) and would like to post on here for input.

Can someone please tell me how?

I've hunted through forums, but just keep getting lost or distracted

Many thanks :smashin:

I assume you mean Google SketchUP.

Load the file into SketchUp, then go to the [File] menu and select [Export]. Then select [2D Graphic]

This will bring up a Save window. In the file formats near the bottom, select .JPG and save the file. (Remember where you saved it.)

Then post this new JPG file as a link to a place like Image Shack.

It saves a pretty large image, so you may want to use a Image Editing Program to reduce the overall size. The image I Exported was 958 x 648 and 140k bytes.

I reduced this image by about 40%. Though how much you reduce it, if you do, will depend on the level of detail it contains.
