In this video I cover how to create the mobile from Chapter 6 in my book. This involves finding the accurate centroid for irregular shapes, which is easily done with my centroid extension. Just model this, send it to the laser cutter, and then hang it.
This is a free sample instructional video from the book “Architectural Design with SketchUp: 3D Modeling, Extensions, BIM, Rendering, Making, and Scripting” (2nd Edition). I discuss this topic more in detail in that book’s Chapter 6.

If you don’t yet have your own copy, follow the links in the sidebar to get one. It is a great reference for SketchUp!
