I am a ModelRailroader, and I have been using CadRail since the end of the 90:th CadRail is basically a program for drawing trackplans, but it can also be used for drawing rolling stock. In my case that is Streetcars. Recently I found out about a firm that is lazercutting parts at a very affordably price, and I saw my chance of building a big model. They needed a DXF-file
from me and CadRail could export DXF-files. Yes, this is the red carpet into big size- modelling. How, wrong I was, but I shouldn´t tire you with the mail conversation I had with SandiaSoftware.
Now, I have tried numerous combinations and bad Cad-programs found on the net. I don´t want to another Cad-program I have got CadRail 10 and SketchUp Make 2017. That is enough!!.
So back on square 1 again, I decided to find out more about SketchUp and the Extension library and look what I found. A little app that could convert SKP files to DXF files within SketchUp. Glaser isb-cad STX which I downloaded and placed the Icon on the command rows. I took one of my files follow the instructions and pressed the DXF button and what´s happened is that I got a dialogbox from some CodeMeter which will give me a lisence for this extension if I pay SEK 5 193.16 (Euro 499:90, USD 576,51) I found thar is pure stealing, and I certainly don´t have that kind of money. So now I am back on Square 1 again. I really don´t know what to do. Suggestions anyone???
