SMB DYO "drawings" in CAD?

I was just wondering if anyone has "converted" the design drawings from SMB's design-it-yourself website into actual CAD files? Preferably .dwg format for use in AutoCAD?

I do CAD for a living, so if I decide to DIY my own cabinets, etc, I could easily do the plans in autoCAD myself.

For now, it would just be "cool" to be able to throw some ideas around in CAD, maybe even mess w/ 3D a little....

Also, does anyone know if SMB themselves would provide CAD files to clients for the purposes of designing their layouts?

thanks for any input.

No Autocad DWG files, but I did a 3-D model in Google sketchup when I was in the DYO mode as well.

The model is available via the Google Sketch 3D warehouse. Just do a search for Sportsmobile and it will come up. It's an older Ford '06 body style (I took it from someone else) but the inside dimensions are pretty close to current.

You could export them to DWG from inside Google Sketchup.

I also have a number of other components I could share with you if you like. Just PM me.

That's awesome! Thanks for sharing!

I may just do a re-draw of the pdf's I downloaded. Save each component as a block in AutoCAD. Hmmm....
