Take your time to understand the plans and how the machine works.

Plans are in metric units, you can generate plans in imperial units simply by changing the units to "imperial" on SketchUp under “window/model info", but the units will not work out to even numbers like they do in metric.
In Autocad, under "format /units" you can change units easily.
