Hi Croy,

The Phlatboys use Sketchup and have the plugins for GCode etc. which are free to download from their forum. Although their machine is upside-down the Z Axis direction GCode is still correct for conventional machines. http://www.phlatforum.com/viewforum.php?f=147&sid=7b90298ca9c43218b1373a5bd7bf5cb6
They are an extremely nice group of guys and only too willing to offer advice and help if requested.
