Re: Download the SketchUp Model of the Ultimate Miter-Saw Stand

I have Sketchup version 7 but this model was done in version 8 which my all of 4 year old software doesn't support. A PDF or even.dwg or other architectural format would be appreciated by those of us unable to keep up with all the latest and greatest. A PDF would certainly be the most generally useful, even if the wow factor is somewhat diminished. Most of us who read this blog, notepad, discussion or whatever, are more than capable of visualizing the real world from drawings, it's what we do. I myself have used Sketchup for clients who have difficulty visualizing drawings, or how their remodel plan will look, but have then been frustrated by their lack of computer savvy or their outdated software. Such is the world in which we live. The lesson I've learned AGAIN, is keep it simple. Another avenue is to export your model as a slideshow from Sketchup as a video that can viewed by various common software such as W-Media Player or Quick Time Player. This will maintain some of the wow you worked so diligently to achieve. I myself would like to use (steal?) some of your ideas pertaining to both the saw stand and your modeling techniques.
