PARTS DEVELOPED - CUT FILES
Includes all definitions of panels that have been developed from the model including offsets for planking thickness and openings for doors and windows. These are laid out so that you can select individual components for CNC as they are required on the job. You can use these patterns to create your own nestings.
NESTED CUT FILES
These are the same parts that are in Series 6 but they are nested out on 1.2m x 2.4m sheets so that a complete kit can be produced in one operation. These are typically the files we supply to kit manufacturers such as VDL composites and ATL Composites.
The build process in drawings, photos and text.
