Here's an animation of the top lifting up.

My head is spinning after spending all day trying to use Sketchup. UGH! It drove me crazy.

After many hours this is the best I can show you.


I have tweaked my measurements a bit but this were my original sketches.

If anyone is fluent in Sketch up and wants to fix my mess let me know and I will send you the file.

I also struggle with SketchUp as I learned parametric CAD (Solidworks) as my first CAD system. I really enjoy OnShape. It’s free and it’s nice that it’s all cloud based so you can work from anywhere with internet. And it functions like other parametric systems which is nice for me. I could build that design in about fifteen minutes in OnShape if you wanted.
