Thanks Nemo.

I tried it and made a pipe but it wouldn't let me make a hole in the side. (Want to try to make a penny whistle as well as a boat!)

Looked at Free!ship. It's Windows only so it'll have to wait until I get home.

My flying buddy is in Sedona and I'm camped out in his house so I can feed his daughter's cats while she takes late classes. I'm taking advantage of his high speed broadband and the opportunity to fly at our club. Maidened my Spit today.

Going to Makerbot either tomorrow or Sunday and asking about delivery time for the various models. (One has a heated bed plate for ABS, another has two print heads but prints a smaller area) I think I want the single head that can do ABS since strength might be needed for some projects.

I thought my flying buddy would think I was crazy but he's as interested as I am!

Thanks for mentioning that Sketchup has plug-ins available.

Pete
