Sorry, this was intended for Mike Condor, not the list.

Just out of curiosity, can you point me to a good tutorial or two about
designing parts to be printed in 3D by Shapeways? I've got some items I
think might be interesting to try, but haven't a clue how to get started.

I am a Linux user and have been fiddling with with FreeCAD a bit, but
applying it to the construction of a model of a real part has so far
eluded me. I also have the professional version of QCAD available, but
I'm pretty sure that's limited to 2D work.

No problem on my part.

BTW, I have some of the the Sergent Engineering assembly jigs that also look like they are made via 3D printing, maybe even by Shapeways, and highly recommend them.  they also have a coupler height "go-no go" gauge that's simpler and lower cost than mine, just works a little differently.
