After opening sketchUp, import a 3D model of teeth from the google 3D warehouse.
Explode the grouping. Except for one tooth that you want to use, erase other teeth and gums.
Save it as a 3ds file.
Step 2: Unfold the 3ds File With Pepakura
Open the saved file in Pepakura.
Click unfold button
Export the planar figure to a vector format
