    Is there a way to port this to SketchUp?

    You can import .stl into SketchUp but it's a pain to work on it because of all the triangles.

    any chance to get this in a 2d end profile in autocad or inventor?
    or something more easily worked with in either of these software packages?

    any chance you could dimension out that profile a bit more. I'm having issues figuring out how big that little piece is next the 45 degree angle.

    I'm not having any luck opening / importing or anything with the software I have and using the files you guys have uploaded.

    Jon, you have to use SketchUp to open the .skp file. SketchUp is free. Once you open it in SketchUp you can measure any part that you want.
