To get SketchUp working for 3D printing you'll likely want to start with this STL Import/Export plugin

Hi, I would like to know if you can help me with a design, I would like you to have a lego form, something similar to the link I am going to attach. A cash register in the form of a lego.
i found a very detailed model ( https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/u2119d101-8549-4e96-becf-1e5b061d869c/Frauenkirche-Dresden) and i would like to print this, but if i export the to stl, ony a small part of the model "survived" how to fix this ?
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.
