I drew the plans and built a model now I am going to attempt to build a 3D model

I think what would make a great aid in model building is if a builder had a 3D model to look at. It would be even better if a builder can interact with the 3D model and rotate it and view it in any view.
I started with a CAD drawing then took that 2d CAD drawing and imported into sketchup. now I can lift parts directly from the original cad drawing.

the original drawing is done with auto cad this way the files can be converted to CNC or laser cutting. Then i could use sketchup for building the 3D model. Right now I am trying to use Solidworks and create a model from start to finish in solidworks.
