Can you save Sketchup files as DXF, or Step, or Iges, formats? My Alibre Cad 2011 doesn't import Sketchup files. Does Rhino import them? They don't have a CAM program for Sketchup files do they? My local welding shop has a water jet, that uses DXF files. You should check out www.Grabcad.com lots of nice 3D models.

I needed an engine for my design so I went looking on Google SketchUp. Found a couple of reasonable models, took the best bits (thanks to the original modellers), corrected mistakes, added a few other bits and came up with this:

View attachment 14556View attachment 14557View attachment 14558View attachment 14559

It's not 100% accurate but its a start. I'm now reworking it for my pusher design. I will up load the model to the SketchUp Warehouse when I remember my Google sign in details. It's a bugger getting old and the memory fails, ain't it!.
