Sketchup 3d Models – Update 27th July 2012

This drawing can be downloaded from Googles 3d Warehouse using the following link:
'http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/-redundant link-

The drawing is based on the Shapeoko Parts Inventor files and Drawings Edward posted on github - thanks again Edward. The polygon count has been reduced mostly by lowing the number of segments in curves often by redrawing the component (creating a section profile and spinning the new part); doing this should significantly reduce the final drawing size making loading, manipulating and combining the parts more fluid.

Most holes in parts have a central axis added to aid with alignment (except the end and motor plates), additionally each separate part is presented as a individual group so as to make Sketchup component creation relatively easy. The drawing is in Sketchup 7 format to make it compatible with versions 6 through to 8.

The name of each group within the 3D model reflects the part reference, description and dimensions.

If anyone find any mistakes in these models please let me know so I can update the model and re-upload a suitable revision. I'll also provide a link and/or copy on the Wiki.

The full Shapeoko 3d model in Sketchup format will be a little more tricky, I have been using a home copy of Inventor Fusion 2013 which doesn't load the linked components from Inventor 2012 files - it just lists their reference, rendering the inherent Inventor model hierarchy and original file useless. Perhaps Autodesk believe I worked for Dessault Systems in a past life... Enjoy the week. :D

Sketchup 3d Parts & Assembly Drawings – Updated 7th Jun 2012

Assembly Drawings 1 through 9 added to Google 3D Warehouse - carriage and base assembly’s. See links later in this thread.

Sketchup 3d Parts & Assembly Drawings – Updated 8th Jun 2012

Revision 002 8th June 2012.
(Nema 17 Motor and M3 motor bolts replaced.)

__________________________________________________________________________________________


NEW MODELS Updated 12th Jun 2012

A new set of Sketchup files is complete, echoing Edwards’ latest build tutorial models now available on the wiki. All Sketchup drawings prior to this new set are removed from Google’s’ 3D Warehouse and will be replaced by the new models 1 through 14.

The new models include dimensioned parts and part/source labels which are given in separate layers enabling them to be turned on an off. The final full Shapeoko Sketchup Model (Model No14) also has a version with the part labels and dimensions removed for a more fluid editing and viewing experience.

The new models should be up in the next day or two – links will be posted in this thread. Best regards. :D

Edit: New models uploaded and linked - see this thread 12th June 2012

________________________________________________________________________________________

Edit 10th July 2012. There is an error in the placement of the female shield connector socket assembly placements on the Arduino Uno model uploaded 23rd June 2012, its tiny and likely occurred in the initial model translation, though it shows up when perfectly aligning an Arduino shield. This is corrected in the blue Arduino Uno model with the GRBLshield atop - this revised blue Arduino Uno/GRBLshield model is linked later in this thread dated July 12th 2012.

Other models have been and will be added, they are easy to find as they are mostly the posts with images so they are not separately listed here. Eventually they will all be linked and pictured on the excellent Shapeoko wiki.

Added a toggle clamp model : No 201A

Nice work Max! I'm anxious to see the full assembly in Sketchup.

Sketchup 3d Parts & Assembly Drawings – Updated 7th Jun 2012

What better way to learn about my new machine than to build it virtually in SketchUp using the parts already modelled. These are the new drawings 1 through 9 documenting the carriage and base assembly’s, each image below relates to a model that can be downloaded from Google’s 3D warehouse.

Some people downloaded the 1st version of three drawings after uploading before I had linked to them, these had an assembly error, the Right Machine Plate was around the wrong way – those models have been deleted and the corrected models upoaded.

Looks great Max! You're really making headway on the Shapeoko -> Sketchup project.


I found an error in this assembly: http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/ ... 67ad6945df

For the kits, we included qty:4 M3x8mm SHCS, along with qty:4 M3 flat washers. The bolts you show in this image look like the M3 x 50mm bolts used to mount the nema17 to the z-axis mount plate. So, it seems that something is wrong. You may want to check the updated build instructions for a better view.

Otherwise, I'm super impressed. Watching me try to use sketchup is about as pathetic as watching a [fill in funny analogy here]

Thanks Edward, I must have had brain fade, rather than concluding that the motor had its own thread I looked for the bolt that would most likely fit through the length of the motor to allow a nut on the other end - even concluded that the motor must be shorter to fit... lol My best mistake so far was having the right hand motor plate around the wrong way. Your feedback on any mistakes is just what I need, much appreciated mate.

Your skill with Inventor leaves you very adept in the 3D department - the Inventor drawings are a credit to you. As I head down the Shapeoko to Sketchup road I am continually reminded as to the knowledge and skill that has been poured into this Shapeoko design and how much I am learning from you in the exercise. :D

Thanks Enraged, lets hope any of my mistakes in the models get ironed out, wouldn't want to mislead anyone. Enjoy the rest of the week mate. :D
