I might be interested in doing some work in Solidworks for this project, but it would only be to the extent that the Drawings would be a good visual aid for how parts are put together, and would be useful for moving things around.

I don't think I would be taking the time to make every detail visible. For example I wouldn't bother putting screws and what not, but it would have a post that represents where the screw would be.

To do this would need accurate measurements of components, positioning etc.

I then could have solidworks convert the 3d entity to some drawing files that I believe would be viewable with free software. It might be able to allow you to look at the 3d image as well and pan it, etc, but not edit it. Of course anyone with Solidworks or other compatible software could open up the files for their own use.
