what format does you laser cutter use? I have access to a 24x36 and uses corel draw. haven't had anything cut on it yet but this looks like an interesting project.

We have a few laser engravers at our shop and Corel is a very common drawing package for us.
You can import a dxf or dwg into Corel and simply format the objects.
Cutting requires a specific color assigned, engraving another...
I am playing a bit here with some of the various files, card models etc. the laser cuts depron beautifully btw... You need to factor a bit of "laser burn" on the parts as the laser will cut like a blade somewhat leaving you a bit shy on sizes...

Thanks for the info, I have been toying with the idea of importing files to cut a fuse to make out of balsa or foam, I need to make it lite as it would be flying off a dirt/grass runway.

Then let others fly with it! :-)
Making you model fly will be a great extra challence for yourself and a pleasure for the one who may fly with it ;-)

yes I and i already decided what thats going to be. A Learjet 85


I will be a complete scratch build incluiding the drawing.

I have purchased a 3D design today so I can start drawing soon. I think It will be a 1/8.4 scale so 2,5m wingspan

Decided to start working on the wings today.

Cut all parts, print the plans to check if sizes match,...

My God Man! Your A320's internal wing spars on CAD look amazing!

Looks like your ready for mass-production!

Thank you sir!
I like to keep everything organised this way it is much more easy to do things.
For example if someone wants to buy a A320kit when mine is finished, I can easly open the files and import them into the laser and cut another kit.
