SketchUp Plans for the Metric Roubo

France was the first country to adopt the metric system, so a French-style workbench drawn in metric seems appropriate.

I’ve uploaded the SketchUp drawing for the workbench we just completed at the Dictum GmbH workshop to the SketchUp 3D Warehouse. You can download it (free, of course), from the warehouse here and play around with it.

The model includes nine scenes that show the construction process, step-by-step.

    As far as I know, The French were not the first to adopt DEFINITIVELY the metric system. It seems there was such opposition that Napoleon had to to make back track. Meanwhile Belgium and Netherlands kept with the metric system ans so where among the first to adopt DEFINITIVELY the metric system.
