Sure, but there are 5546 edges in your schrader-valve model. Setting manually entity info for each of them, it would be very ineffective...
I was not referring to my models.
I am stating this for your cylinder models that you were talking about.
None of my models were done in Sketchup!

You cannot have everything in a free CAD program.

I quess I do not understand what you are trying to do.

See my own Schrader valve model, created from scratch in Sketchup. I have no experience with other CAD program, so I like it! :lol:

Very nice 3D model!
Did you use SketchUp Pro 7 or 8?
Can you export to sat file?

It is SketchUp 8 free version.
There is no export to sat in it.

You can get a free file converter then change the file format to what you need, for the most of the formats. You have to check them out to find what you need.
Look if you must.

jrrdw;
I have been doing CAD file conversions for over 25 years and know most of them for free do not do all that well. Especially to sat file conversions.
SketchUp is one that is the "new kid on the block" for CAD programs.

Most high end CAD programs have much better export capabilities.
I will see if JSR can do a sat file conversion for me. Hint, Hint! :)

I downloaded SketchUp Pro 8 to see what was available and it definitely can not do sat files.

The unique thing about sat files is that you can make use of primitive solids to create and modify existing 3D sat models by using union and subtract.
All my 3D models make use of the basic primitive solids.

I have some basic SketchUp models (components) for larger diameter PVC fittings that I couldn't seem to find elsewhere. Would this be a good place to post them, or should I create my own topic?

What fittings and sizes have you done?
You can post images of them here.

Do you have an account with 3D warehouse?

Some 6" and 8" schedule 80 fittings that I'm using for designing my cannon - elbows, tees, bushings, flanges, and couplers. All I did was convert some IGES models, really. Will get a photo up later today, but you can see some of it in my MFIC build log.

Yes I noticed your build log after I posted my questions.
You can see my preliminary of the Blitz launcher using Charlotte Pipe fittings in your buld log.

Here's what I made. And by made, I mean converted and tweaked. :)

Top row: 8" fittings. Middle row: 6" fittings. The two elbows are also 6". All schedule 80.
