MAKE

MAKE lets engineers create precise one-off and parametric 3D models in SketchUp and export machining instructions for CNC program generation.

Works with SketchUp Pro

Features

  • Work inside SketchUp using standard SketchUp tools.

  • Attach intelligent manufacturing operations to components

  • Export machine-neutral data files to generate CNC machining programs

  • Create dimensioned and annotated shop drawings using LayOut

Machining Operations

With MAKE, the ability to attach drilling operations to components,
including tool paths for routing and grooving, is built in. Attaching perimeter contour tool paths for nested machining, inheritance machining between components as well as compound machining operations are all part of the tools functionality. Unlike other softwares MAKE allows for the maximum level of flexibility so that building specials and custom pieces can be done faster and all within one tool. 

And, MAKE allows for the creation of libraries of components all with standard machining operations.

Exports and Shop Drawings

Exports of Bills of Materials in CSV formats, machining operations to CAM software, and the creation of custom reports using SketchUp's Report Generator provide a comprehensive capabilities stack. 

  • Export Indented Bills of Materials in CSV format
  • Export machining operations to CAM software
  • Create custom reports using SketchUp's Report Generator
  • Create shop drawings of SketchUp models using Layout
  • Add associative dimensions and annotations in Layout

And, MAKE allows for the creation of libraries of components all with standard machining operations.

Integration with FLOW

Using MAKE in conjunction with FLOW, engineers can upload models to FLOW and attach attributes for options, materials and calculating costs. Data for CAM can be exported from MAKE and FLOW. More information about FLOW is here.
