Hi Lynn,

Thank you for studiously following my SketchUp and CabWriter tutorials. If I have done my job it will make you a much better user of the tools.

The grid tool you are looking for is part of my Construction Plus tool set. Construction Plus is found under the SketchUp > Free Plugins menu of the website. To make it easy on you click here.

In Part 1 I give you a link to the finished model. Again, for your convenience, you can click here. When you download this model you can get the construction points and lines (Story Stick) by clearing all layer visibility check boxes except Layer0 and $Construction$. Then follow this procedure:
1 In my finished model click on menu Edit > Select All
2 In my finished model click on menu Edit > Copy
3. In your blank or new model click on menu Edit > Paste In Place
This will give you the same points in the same place.

I hope this helps. Again, thanks for your interest.
