Hi Dave,

Thanks for all of the tips and links. You have made it much easier for me to figure this stuff out. I have managed to create a design using 3 views and Sketchup and I am fairly happy with the results. However now that I have gotten this far I am stuck. I for the life of me cannot figure out how to take the 3D drawing and make a 2D representation that can be printed out and used as a pattern for cutting foam. Also even though I have drawn a plane with a 19-1/2" wing span, no mater what I do the output is always compressed on one 8-1/2" x 11" sheet. I for the life of me can't figure out how to get an output that is to scale. Probably just missing something.

Thanks again for the tips and advice.

Rob...
