I’m trying to use sketch up to design a model to send to a 3d print shop - it’s designed to hold an arduino (+ a couple of other things). The key point is that the dimensions need to be accurate - particularly the hole placements. The crux of my question is how can I type in the location of the holes so that their alignment is precise - e.g hole 1 is 58mm to the right, and 28mm above hole 2.
Hole sizes (i.e diameter) I can do, as when I ‘sketch’ the circle, I can then type in the exact measurement into the bottom corner text box but I’m following the arduino dimensions - here - so obviously I need the relative positions holes in this layout to match my sketch. I’ve tried adding dimension lines to my sketch, in the hope that if I typed over the figure, the drawing would realign - but this seems not to happen.
I played a little with FreeCad which was very buggy, but what was nice about it was that you could specify these dimensions by typing, and as relative constraints.
