2D Nesting Feature for SketchUp + Import from iOS sketch app
Blank Slate SketchUp Plugin

Blank Slate SketchUp Plugin

Our plugin adds two separate features to SketchUp:


Feature #1 -- 2D Nesting for SketchUp: preparing designs for laser cutting just got easier!

Export flatpack parts for 2D nesting to create an optimized SVG file for laser cutting. Our automated nesting enables better efficiency by packing together 2D shapes for laser, plasma and water cutting.  Nesting is a process for tightly arranging shapes to minimize waste and reduce fabrication time.  Our goal is to provide a fast solution that gives you much better material usage.


Feature #2 -- Import 2D sketches from our sketch iPad app.

Our iOS sketch design tool, Zotebook, recognizes your rough 2D sketches and turns them into precise CAD files for laser cutters or 3D printers. This plugin allows files to be imported from Zotebook into SketchUp for 3D editing.

While installing into SU2016 message "will need SU 2017" displays. Is there any chance to bring it into SU2016? Best regards

Hi Bernhard-

Thanks for the feedback. SketchUp 2017 introduced the Chromium framework which we rely on as part of our plugin.

Very cool! Dissassembles and nests!

Looks great, guys! A much needed extension for folks with laser cutters at their disposal.
