Extruding the offset You could have drawn another circle on top of the cylinder instead of using the Offset tool; that’s easy when it’s just a circle. But if this were an odd-shaped surface, then the Offset tool would be much faster to use. So far, we have covered some of the basics of Google SketchUp. As we build upon each chapter, I will be introducing additional tools you can utilize and also show techniques you can use to save time when modeling. In the next section, you will take a look at Shapeways, the online platform for uploading and 3D printing your models.

If you have a credit card, then choose PayPal. You will need to create a PayPal account to transfer money. Figure 2–26. Select a payment method. Click "Order Now," and you are automatically redirected to the PayPal web site. Enter your PayPal account information, and pay for the transaction. After payment, you are automatically redirected to the Shapeways account. Unlike other online stores you might have purchased from, there are no shipping costs. The shipping is included with the price of the model.

The cost of the model is automatically calculated at the top. Select the arrow keys in the navigation window to rotate the model to view it from different angles. As you rotate the model, make sure to look at all the characters before you save and order the model. The Shapeways Creator is not perfect, and one of the problems you might encounter is overlapping characters. In the model in Figure 2–12, the word STRUGGLE has overlapping Gs. It’s very important that you check and then double-check your model for problems.
