Geez I can't believe I fell for that trap. When I know they are both CnC operated. CNC bit cut is what I was refering to.

OK, with a cutter like a milling cutter is what you meant. I know that some materials, including steel, can be CNC cut with a water jet and also with sand jet. Foam can be cut with a hot wire CNC machine.
I was wondering if the OP used his own CNC cutter or had it done for him outside.

CNC Router with a steel cutting bit. they do balsa and ply kits too Or the laser they cut kits too. The wood will be burnt on the edge's, you will know it if you were to pick up a laser cut kit and open the box it will smell burn't. I don't remember if he said he has his own cutter,but with his skills Im sure he could run it.

Do You have a system, your working after, or do you just try, and redrawing if is wrong.

Because it look a littel bit confuse

Can you please tell more ?
