SketchUp Plugins for 3D Printing

by TheNewHobbyist

SketchUp plugins can be pretty handy for making your 3D designs printable. What is everyone using on their installs?

My current must have plugins are:

CleanUp³ - Removes stray "orphaned" lines from your models. Great for finding those hard to find parts that are keeping your model from being a manifold mesh.

Weld - Turns multiple edges into a single polyline.

Solid Inspector - Helps you find issues with your models that are keeping it from being a manifold mesh.

Shell - Adds thickness to single walled models. Somewhat finicky but it can easier than modeling complex shells on existing objects.
