Creating a tube chassis with Sketchup

After researching for many days and trying out many different 3D programs I finally found a easy way to make a tube chassis in 3d. I now use SketchUp and the plugin Tube Along Path. I use it with SketchUp version 13.0.4812 I cannot make the plugin work in newer versions of SketchUp, so I dont update my current version.

Every line I make in SketchUp I turn into a component, then the tubes “melt” better together.

The chassis on the top picture is my 1/24 scale, drag car, with a brushless motor. Designed to fit the Tamiya Golf Mk1 Kamei Group 2 (#24008) body.

Do you know a good tube plugin for SketchUp or another good program, then please leave a comment 🙂
