Hammock made with Sketchup…

I found the easiest way to build in Sketchup is to build a bunch of standard lumber sizes and use them over and over again. I can’t wait to make it… “Link. Check out other projects that are made (or will be made) with Sketchup here – Link.

Since Sketchup went free, we’re seeing a lot of new projects being posted – eventually you might be able to send off your files to a fabricator, lumber yard or whatever supplier – the stuff shows up, you make it! How cool will that be! Maker-aware suppliers could have all their parts/tools/things available as Sketchup components so we can use them to build our projects (and eventually order).

    so where’s the link to the sketchup file?

    I’d like to build this, but don’t want to “reinvent the wheel.” (read – “am too lazy to design it myself”)

    I’d love to be able to make one of these also!

  4. monkeyhumper says:


    Have at it, people! Make sure and document the build and post photos to the Make pool!

    I suggest using these 12 foot 2×2’s for extra support.

    I’d love to let people upload stuff from SketchUp to Big Blue Saw so that parts could be made, but unfortunately, the free version doesn’t support DXF output. And I don’t see any documentation for SketchUp’s native format.

    I used SketchUp last December to design a home-bar from scratch. I ended up designing the different sized pieces of lumber that I needed and pieced it all together, similar to this project.
