Well- this will be one of my studies on our road trip to San Diego. Here is a good website comparing the different programs and pricing (including which are free for hobbyists and non-commercial users) to determine what you might want to pursue. https://www.matterhackers.com/articles/ ... re-for-you

Thanks for the link Keith.
I have been a hands on guy my entire life and I am 68 years old now. I still purchase the tools and equip. needed to do a job rather then paying someone else. To that end I would rather learn how to produce these files then purchase them, I have specific things I want to work with and have not found any commercially available files even close to what I want / need. I am also just in this for a hobby so my learning how to design 3d illusion projects is a big part of that enjoyment.

HI folks.
Sketchup will convert a 3d model to 2d vector. Import your 3d model, rotate / move it to the orientation you want, select it then click on "file, export, 2d graphic and then select the format you prefer". It will export the 2d vector file as seen from the current viewpoint.

I export to dxf and it imports into RDWorks just fine.

Hope this helps....
