I haven’t tried it, yet, but damn, what a cool idea. EagleUp is the work of Swiss design engineer Jerome Lamy. It runs inside SketchUp and requires co-installation of ImageMagick. The script will automatically generate a 3D model of a printed circuit board from an image exported by Cadsoft Eagle, then populate it with preexisting component models. Some components come with the script, some are available in Google’s 3D Warehouse, and some are available in a library from Dangerous Prototypes, who also put together the excellent tutorial linked below.
