Hi, after wasting a little time playing with my laser cutter I tried this just to test how fine it would cut, very impressed, the picture struggles to show just how fine the detail is cut in places, certainly could not cut this fine by hand.

Hi,

After a little time playing with file conversion programs, I finally found a system which works for me. After several requests to cut from plans I can now convert PDF to DXF/DWG for CNC or Laser cutting. Here is a test file cut from a downloaded free plan in PDF format. Not much wasted space here!! all I have to do now is complete the cutting of other parts and complete the build to test.

Iain that is looking very impressive. How are you going to power your Eiffel Tower? :lol:

Do you know what I'd love to see, a lovely CNC kit with foam wings for a 'traditional' aerobatic kipper style glider. Something like the old Flair Heron , Mijet etc. there is just nothing like that out there. I used to have a Mijet in the dim and distant and have fond memories, I'd love to build another one. I'm talking 68-72 " flat wing semi symmetrical / symmetrical wing section, shaped box fuz etc, etc.
