A guide by Josh at SolidSmack.


Josh at Solidsmack has just posted a great article on his blog How To Go from a SolidWorks 3D Part to Ponoko - Fast

A perfect step by step guide for Solidworks users to get their designs in to the Ponoko workflow. Our only additions are that you should use the new Inkscape templates and Starter Kit, and always double check that the colors you're using match the required RGB values.

Big thanks to Josh Mings....

Data looks a little old though. I wonder if there's more up-to-date info on using Solidworks for Ponoko 2d manufacturing?
