This sketchup video provides the demonstration of Sketchup SVG outline plugin and how it is used for creating the design of an interlocking box as well as cutting it through the Arduino CNC. This sketchup plugin will transform any sketchup model into SVG format (Scalable Vector Graphics), then apply makercam to load the file onto Easel.

This SketchUp plugin is very useful for exporting faces from any 3D model into the 2D Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format.

This will facilitate to apply editors like Inkscape (open source) and generate 2D layouts for laser cutting, simple CNC milling, scrollsaws, etc.
