How to use sketchup for cleaning up geometries of a 3d warehouse model & make it 3d printable

Aaron Dietzen presents a useful sketchup video that shows the detailed process to download any model from 3d warehouse and make it 3d printable. After downloading a model, it becomes difficult to 3d print the model as the model is not a solid.

Aaron shows how to convert the unprintable into a manifold solid for 3d printing.

Two most recognized sketchup extensions like CleanUp3 (³0)and Solid Inspector2 ( are used in this video to clean up all the geometries as well as transform the model to a solid ready-to-print.
