Sketchup rocks!

If you've never used Googles Sketchup application, you're missing out! I've yet to use such a powerful FREE 3d application. A whole new breed of scratchbuilders have emerged ..... they call themselves 'phlatboyz'. Crafting foam models from a 'kit' based sub $1000 CNC machine for foam sure sounds like fun to me!

SketchUp is "rocking" a bit less now. Google is slowly crippling it so you will have to buy the full version. The new update to 7.1 will not import DWG and DXF files. I posted here, along with a temporary fix: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1126556
