Heart key for cymon's mini geared heart by taifoid Aug 4, 2012

Description

A google sketchup file of cymon's awesome keyed heart gears keychain key. Someone smarter than me can use it to print the key at a higher infill, separate to the gears, which they might choose to print at a lower infill.

I printed my original plate at 30% (I think) infill, and the resultant key wasn't up to the task, although the gears printed with a high degree of awesomeness.

I've uploaded the key alone to the original thing now.

You should really use the ancestor functionality for this one so it's related to the original. If you edit your thing it's near the bottom that you can define an ancestor.
google search for stl import plugin... i think i got one here but wouldnt hurt for you to search too sketchuptips.blogspot.com/2010/03/sketchup-stl-importer-redo.html

Instructions

ATM I don't know how to export STL's from google sketchup basic, and I don't have the $ for pro, so it's an .skb atm. Any ideas how to export as an .stl would be great.

pro tip: cymon's original heart gear plate has 42332 polygons, apparently that's alot.
