What I want to do
Use Sketchup models of the Mobius action cam to illustrate instructions on its use. The existing instructions are hard to read and could use illustrations. They also rely on pages in the RC Groups Forums. I want to make a single document of instructions.
My attempt and results
I found Henrik Sandaker Palm's Mobius Sketchup model on Grabcad, contacted Henrik to see if he was ok with me using it (he was!) and modified it to add the buttons and re-uploaded it.. the files are also attached below.
I then wanted a clean vector image showing the ports and buttons, so I exported a PNG file from Sketchup 2014 Make and traced it in Illustrator to make an SVG. I wish I could just render a good looking file out of "Make" but can't seem to. that's what you see above. I'm going to repeat the process for other views I need to get the line art I want. rear_view.png.svg
Questions and next steps
I'm going to start re-writing the Mobius manual so it 1) prints & photocopies easily and 2) is easy to read.
How do I actually make nice renderings from Sketchup 2014 Make?
