    Sketchup/CAD drawing

    I need a Sketchup (or similar software) drawing done. It is a fairly simple drawing that I think could be done in half an hour.

    It is of a metal part that that will have a number bolt holes.

    If possible I would like to meetup with someone in Bangkok and go over what I am trying to design. (willing to travel also)

    Happy to pay for work.

    Bkk is too far away for me to meet but if you have a rough hand drawn sketch I could sort it out.

    If you are okay to meetup, I'm happy to drive to Chonburi.

    There are a few minor details in the drawing that I am not sure about and I would like to be sitting with the CAD operator to make minor adjustments.

    Sketchup is very easy to collaborate with others remotely. I used to be very good at it, but i have not used it for years and it would take a while to bring myself up to speed with all the shortcuts and tools.
    If I was you, I would take Fondles up on his offer.
    As he said , make a rough sketch of what you have in mind, and post it, Fondles will make a 3D model of it and post a link to it,
    You download sketchup for free on your computer , open the link and look at it, turn it around, tame measurements.
    then get back to Fondles with any changes you would like. (I like hole A x radius) (I like this bigger, that smaller)
    You don't need to show these changes on sketch up if you are not comfortable. You can take a screenshot ,open it on Windows Paint , highlight the areas you want changed in red or whatever, and make notes.
    Anyway Good luck.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    This probably is the way to go, if Fondles is still willing to help.

    Tomorrow I will make a wooden mockup of a portion the part just to figure out some of the angles.

    Thanks for the suggestions gentlemen.
