Google Sketchup CAD
« on: January 21, 2008, 02:53:58 PM »
OK guys

I am planning to make a collection of components in Google Sketchup meant for robotics .

I myself have made quite a few parts myself and I will include them.
For those who want to make parts or who have made parts already upload it to Google Warehouse ( or send me the CAD) and I will add it to my collection. I will give you all credit for your work .


the collection name will be "SoR Robotics Collection"



Thank You,
Eric

If you made or know of any robot or robot component in sketchup and the parts are more or less to scale than please post the link to the robot or the component. Thanks


Here is the stuff I have so far ( some are mine some are not )
Servo -  http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=5037e21afda58beddc2edd615dbac3e7&prevstart=0
Servo Mount - http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=80805568b57b9465e3f7b30983720e03&prevstart=0

Hi, here is my 16x2 character LCD module.

Do you require both the .skp and .skb files? I put them both in a zip anyway.

i used to use solidworks but I have found that Google Sketchup is ten times easier and works just as good . Thanks anyway BANE

Anybody else have any other CADs for Google Sketchup?

can you import them.

I noticed that google sketchup allows you to import lots of different files. Unfortunately you cant export them so you are forced to use that program if you download any of the models, even if i prefer to use other tools for modelling

I made the ATMega8 and the servos using Google Sketchup... but at the time I didnt know how to change the units from inches so I had to draw them at like 300x scale in approximate inches hahaha... but now I have it in millimeters which is awesome because millimeters let you get some crazy details in =) Im going to remake the stuff I already made. I also made the 7805 vreg and such... ah well, learning process :)

Heres 2 more modules for you :).

A crystal oscillator and a potentiometer.

The leads on the oscillator are slightly thicker than scale, but sketchup has a minimum radius for circles... :(

Excellent work!

I would like this to be a part of the community project.

I would also like to link your directory to the SoR site directly but not really sure where is good . . . ideas? Maybe a short members tutorial page titled something like "Google Sketchup Robot Parts" or something like that . . .

Heres the screw terminals for that DC motor driver board that you said you would make.

I hope you havent allready done them...

Yeah, i think a member's tutorial is in place, also printing and drawing out to scale is a bit difficult.
Ill get started on a tutorial next week.

I spent all weekend learning sketchup  ;D

still have lots of learning to do.

eric, i noticed the video links on the members tutorial are outdated.

I would link to this page with video tutorials for the latest version, and self paced tutorials!! note taking is recommended!

anyone else running into a problem with trying to make solid faces .8 x .8mm or less? Im trying to model the KA7805 used for the $50 robot but at the top of the pins where the pin width shrinks down a little bit, its not drawing the faces within that slant area...


also, im going to try to contact Google and see if they will support an ability to use and measure as little as .01mm or even .001mm instead of 1mm being the smallest free handable(yeah thats right, im cool enough to make my own words) and measurable. It would be most helpful IMO.

its not to scale??? I think it is close enough to it

can u correct it if it is , and scale it down and upload it and I'll correct it.

Btw , why are you going for such small detail??? ;)
