Sketch It, Makeit now released for iPad

Appears the maker of Sketchup have released a 2D drawing app, eventually to become 3D. Just downloaded the app but have not tried it yet.

Forgot the link, here it is:

Ok, at first use, the interface appears to be functional and has most capabilities. It appears to be only in inches, emails the shopbot GCODE not saving it and for "CNC" it outputs code specifically for the shopbot. So there are some limitations and the YouTube channel is hammered at the moment so the tutorials may not load. Also if you don't save your sketch and open another app, you lose your sketch. I have sent them feedback and will post if I get a response.

I will also check to see if the GCODE is of any value as it doesn't appear to set a thickness.
