    someone here showed a pattern that she designed using a tool named sketchup.

    I downloaded it and so far, I'm too dumb to use it. My plan for the weekend is to see if my husband will show me how. He's an engineer, so I'm thinking he will be able to do it.

    Is this a simplified CAD program? (or atleast simplified compare to what an Engineer would us LOL)

    When DB was here, I was playing with a block idea on EQ and he was copying me on a CAD program on his lap top. The benefit was he could do more accurate measurements... For example he could measure down to an 1/8" and I could only go to the 1/4"
