I am trying to use Google SketchUp (the free one) to try to design a box for my 12" IDMax in my tahoe. I was wondering if anyone knew of any plugins or of a way for sketchup to calculate the volume of the enclosure (I know I could do all the calculations myself, but there is a lot of angles and cuts, and I am lazy!:D )

I am trying to design something to fit here:

minus the jack and stuff

I am trying to hit QTC @ .707, so I am trying to come up with 1.85 ft^3 net and 1.97 ft^3 gross.

Here is my work so far (still working/learning with sketchup). The more I am working with the program the more I like it, but the less I like the box design. I am just trying to build a box that look to be part of the truck, but I may just have abandon that and just build a basic box. Anyway, here's what I am working on:

I put way too much in this thread, but if you have any input on SketchUp or better ideas for a box, I would appreciate it.
