since sketchup can import a lot of plan formats or pictures all you need is to add dimensions.

With the sketchup you can then do a complete rescale in about 1 second...not exaggerating here...you use the tape tool to measure just one dimension ...such as the span...then tell it what size you want...and just resize the whole model ..it then shows all the new sizes

A great easy method for resizing any plan since sketchup will import and export in lots of the plan formats ...
Very nice, Dave.

Not as fast as ScaleAndTile3 , but much more capabilities. I'll look forward to using your tutorials when I get a Phlatprinter, which I must have to properly cut the bundle of BluCor that's on its way here.

Best regards,
