Laser cutting?

(1/2) > >>

david5:
There is a boat I would like to build, I was thinking of getting the frames and keel laser cut, as itís not a big boat and Iíll have save weight where I can and when I cut my own frames there always seems to be Ď some rectification Ď work to do, which increases the weight.

Any ideas where I can get it done and costs,

steve tranter cut the frames for this boat for me, and the wooden boat I made for the ambulance service in Guernsey went together like a dream........it was the first wooden boat I had built in  40 years........testament to steve's service......the parts went together so well, it didn't need my usual kilo of filler and after a light sanding a grp mould was taken off it.

carlmt:
If you have the frames already drawn as either .dwg or .dxf files, then the laser cutting itself isn't a great expense (cost of plywood and laser use time).
If no cad files, then factor in an additional time cost for scanning of frames and re-drawing in a format that the laser cutter can read.
Happy to help if needed - drop me a line!

I was wondering about the drawing side of it,I thought I might need cad drawings for it,that might be the delay,thanks for the offer Carl.
