    Import/Export of .stl files for Sketchup

    Brent pointed me to this plugin the other day. If you install through Sketchup 2008, 2013, 2014, or 2015, search for "Sketchup STL" in the extension warehouse and click the install button.

    I got that plugin several months ago and used it a few times. Since I bought VCarve and it imports skp files, I haven't needed the stl export in SketchUp.

    I had used it to import an stl into sketchup, but just went ahead and exported in stl as well, even though it was unnecessary, LOL

    Hmm.. i'm not sure the page i got mine from is up anymore - it seems tougher to find lately. I'll zip mine up and share it that way, instead... i have a few of 'em. Some work with some drawings, others work with other drawings... I haven't gotten one to work with 2015 yet, but i kept a v8 install around and they all work great there.
