Minimum wall thickness?

Postby RBarone » Wed Jul 18, 2012 11:09 am

Anyone know of a plugin that highlights a preset minimum wall thickness for 3d printing?

For example if i set a minimum wall thickness to 3mm it would check the model and point out anything less than the minimum?

I am getting pretty good at Sketchup and have downloaded many plugins already. But maybe Sketchup do it already and I am just not seeing it?

I Xray mode you can see the inside and outside of a solid object's "shell".
You can then pick points with the TapeMeasure tool and get the distance == thickness...
Also cutting sections lets you see inside objects and do similar measuring...
