  • A 3D SketchUp model featuring various scenes that will allow you to view and understand the model better, make modifications in the design or check measurements. SketchUp is an indispensible CAD tool for makers, and it's free.
  • 3D Autocad model of the DIY grinding wheel.
  • DXF files for CAM programs.
  • The plans are a 8 megabyte Zip file (any computer, Mac or PC, should be able to open Zip files)
  • Take your time to understand the plans.
  • All my plans are in metric, but you can change them to imperial on SketchUp under the command "window/model information," although it's not completely effective at converting. In Autocad, under "format /units" you can change units easily. Logically, PDF sheets and other printable templates and presentations will continue to be in metric.
