I have plenty of (SAE) calipers and micrometers ... so if you, or anyone needs anything precisely measured either for a CAD diagram or to make their own tool, just ask and I'll make the measurements for you.

OMG. $995 USD. Whoooooooeeeeeee! You must be a pro!

I have been using Autocad and other modeling programs for years. Rhino is the best of the lot and probably why NASA and Saleen use it, as well as many architects/engineers that need more intuitive 3D Modeling.

Yes, it is expensive, but the capabilities are amazing. You should go back to their website and download the Demo - you will be impressed!

If you can get me the measurements in a similar fashion to mine, then I can make another model and update the drawing.
