    Jon that's a great tip. Built in Weber Kettle models will be very useful. And Kickstarter is not a bad idea at all!

    and it has Weber kettle models in there so you have a good start.

    edit: oh and I'm all over your Kickstart when you launch.

    There is a learning curve with all CAD stuff, as I'm sure you're aware. Try Google Sketchup. It's free, will give you the measuring capabilities you need, and it's not too difficult to learn.

    Thanks for all the info thus far.

    I want to blueprint an accessory that will go inside a standard kettle. It will be made of plates of metal.

    I can draw that! If I can draw out a brewing setup that uses the waste heat from my bbq, washes the dishes, drives away the sketchy neighbors, AND cleans the moose poop from the yard, I can draw Pit Boss's rig.

    I think Pit Boss has plans to engineer an PID-automated stickburning offset kamado with a beer tap, Kuerig coffee brewer and wine rack built in, with 8 wireless & waterproof radio & WiFi thermometer probes and heat-proof cooker cam with see-through-smoke vision.

    Yep, that's what I think.

    I have training on Autocad and Revit. Google sketch up is good. So is Turbocad. Let me know if I can help. Not knowing what you are drawing makes it difficult to help you find a solution that meets your needs.

    Have you looked at Stetchup? Its pretty sweet. Its modeling software but its pretty flexible.

    started a topic CAD software for noobs

    CAD software for noobs

    Anyone have a recommendation for a noobie level Computer Aided Design program? I've got an idea I want to change into a schematic. It's not complex but the dimensions are important so I want something like a CAD program so I can be precise.
