How-to build 3D models from Eagle files @ Dangerous Prototypes.

Over the last few weeks we’ve been building 3D models of our projects in Google SketchUp using the EagleUp script. This script makes a 3D model of the board fromCadsoft Eagle board (.brd) files, and populates it with preexisting models of components.

Once you have a 3D model in SketchUp you are free to evaluate it, build custom enclosures around it, or interface your model with others. This tutorial will help you build 3D models of your projects.
