Any chance of doing this for Tropico?

Hello there!
I'm trying to prepare some sketchup files to print im my makerbot, but the models were not made for 3D printing. Any tips on how to prepare the sketchup files to do so?

you would have to download sketchup and then download the stl plugin so that you can export it as an stl

Hello Skimbat,
I work for a museum in Paris, France (Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine). Every semester we publish a short brochure on our activities for young audiences. Next February we will host our first 3D workshop for teenagers, and we would like to illustrate this workshop with one of these photos. Would you agree to send me the "City display" photo in high definition? Of course, we would credit you on the brochure! Please feel free to contact me: amacgillivray@citechaillot.fr . Thanks in advance and have a good day! A. MacGillivray

These would be great for Battletech games, I think.

Is there any programm that can export the buildings from the game into .stl files (like with minecraft) or you've simulated it yourself?

Thank you so much for these files!

I just printed the Capitol Building, and many others will follow! I have the idea of a little city hanging on my wall as a kind of 3d-picture. ;)

So, would you be able to add a curved street fro me? That would be very kind!

Thank you again!

These are beautiful, they print wonderfully.

Can you check the scale of the light industrial buildings? One of them seems really, really big and one of them is really tiny.

Everything else is the right size.

WOW!!! i'd certainly buy these 3d printed models!

Very, very cool. Like my cut-and-fold Asterix Gaulish village in the early seventies, only
lt;. I don't suppose these are scaled to match 1/300th microarmour? Tank battles in Sim City!

My wife wants ancient Roman buildings, now that she's seen what is possible.

could you reup the zip file again, it gets an error saying problem rendering the file

Thank you so much for posting these! I have been dying to make some of these since seeing your impressive display in Kansas City maker faire!

We need a city for my thing "http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:12281http://www.thingiverse.com/thi..." to be right in the middle.

just after GE's B2 goes over.

Nuke Blast

Now we need someone to make a Godzilla.stl

I am totally printing every one of these! :-D

Incredibly awesome! Sim City 2000 was the game that made me NEED to get a computer.

Any plans to model the arcologies? I've always wanted to print a Darco...

Thank you for all the work you put into these.

+1 for Arcologies. Can't wait until the Launch and Plymouth arcos are up

Next time Boomer / Brebot is in New York he will finish filming:

What Man Creates Robots can Destroy Part Deux! The Destruction of SimCity. =-X


I can't thank you enough for posting these. I'v been admiring them since I saw them at your table at the KC MakerFare.

Have you made a coffee table out of them yet?? You should add the roads that are in the sketchup shot too =)

haha, well done! :)

Hmm... needs a rule set. Like Conway's game of life, but with buildings.

Good Suggestion. If you write something up, post it to Thingiverse as a derivative

SO AWESOME. Thank you so much for putting this on Thingiverse.

Fun. I was always annoyed with SimCity because you had to keep growing or else your city died. Well, that's not a problem now because I don't mind printing out more parts!

Also one of my favourite games! The detail on these is really great. Thanks for sharing Skimbal.
