    A way to do 3d puzzle patterns?

    I came across this article on creating slices of a grouped object from sketchup: http://www.kwartzlab.ca/2011/01/goog...esign-cnc-rou/ This is a theory, but the slice plugin looked like a good way to do the 3d jigsaw puzzles for anyone interested. You may have to join this forum, but the slice plugin is attached on the first post of this thread: http://forums.sketchucation.com/view...?f=180&t=15313 An example I did from a vase from the 3d warehouse, should be able to hide the assembled version and print patterns for the pieces: Click image for larger version.

    This might be kinda fun. Have a buddy that would know what kind of truck this is in a heart beat (pun intended).

    Another fine use...to get contours at different sections of a drawing...

    Excellent suggestion, Darren.

    Looks like a 69-72 vintage Chevy truck.
