How sketchup was utilized to create the world’s first ever 3d printed robotic parrot
Brian Matthews, the owner of Flapping Sprocket website, has developed world’s first ever 3d printed robotic parrot by applying the most recognized 3d drawing program sketchup for creating the design of all the parts of the parrot.
In order to get the view of a 3d parrot, Brian initially downloaded a drawn version from sketchup 3d warehouse. Afterwards, he put his downloaded model and makes a fresh start through sketching profile as well as front views of a parrot illustrated from web photos imported to sketchup. He also utilizes three leading plugins like .STL export, Fredo’s Junction push-pull, and TIG’s Smart Offset plugin to complete the project successfully.
