Just been messing about on sketchup, I dont have any CAD software and I feel that the user-friendlyness of sketchup suits me.


You can change the units of measure to inches or millimetres for smaller scale things.

Just made this, check it out! It's not to scale but gives me a better idea of what I am trying to achieve.


Theres lots of other crap in there people have done including quite a few Volvos!

I play with AutoCAD all day. I'm not gonna put that on my work computer though. I don't have windows at home either though :-(

It's pretty funky, I believe that there is a physics program that allows for moving parts.
