I need all the help I can get with CAD and printing-- so I leave the deatails to you. For some reason, my circle is really a polygon with about 25 sides rather than a true circle. I presume I am doing something incorrectly in Sketchup.
(BTW, I found the answer to the polygon issue here: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/sketchuphowto/B7AYR-fBhKE -but it looks like I would have to start from scratch to get more of a "circle" ).
