How I got the file from sketch-up

Download & install sketchup from http://www.sketchup.com/products/sketchup-pro/new-in-2017?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIq-_nmO6Z1QIVxantCh10pQ5TEAAYAiAAEgLspvD_BwE

Download & install 3D builder from https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/3d-print/3d-builder-resources

Download the model from 3D warehouse as a skechup 17 file

Open it in sketchup

Export it as an OBJ file

Open & edit in 3d builder

Save as an STL in 3D builder

I have thickened the walls to print better (rather crudely done however so the wheels may be a little distorted)

very very cool unfortunately the inside walls are too thin to print at a smaller scale....requires further editing.... please share how you made it printable from sketchup? i cant make the collada files printable... i sure can make them STL and they appear on my slicer fine but it cant detect the geometry.... thanks for the "bocho" !!!(slang for beetle in spanish!)
