  • found a neat sketch program

    hey all found a neat program called google sketch up. Its a free download and its pretty neat, but there is a learning curve. I would recomend the video tutorials before ya start. I played around with it this afternoon and I liked what it can do. Just thought I would pass it on to everyone.

        Thanks CW, I had it in the past and totally forgot it was there. Not a bad program indeed.

            Thermwood has a full scale cabinet CAD program that is free. Totally awesome but the learning curve is huge if you don't have any cad experience. I tried it and managed to get a few things designed but wow, it's tough!

            Link is on the lower left of their home page.

              Sketchup is great. It was like it was made for woodworking. I use it for designing my telescopes.

                        That's lousy news... I heard on the news that the housing market was cooling off in the States... I guess it's true...

                        Things are going pretty strong here, knock on wood, fingers crossed...

                        I hope things pick up for you all real soon
