Re: pattern making

I've seen the company's website, and I was very disappointed.
They require you to use their proprietary software, which is VERY
restrictive, and they will only cut wood.
Their software only supports certain designs of windows and doors
(for structures), and that's it.

I do not see any benefit to STMFC modeling from that company
(their name escapes me, too!)

I visited a freind last night that had attended the
Cinci NMRA convention. He saw a company that was
planning to sell software soon which would design CAD
patterns to do laser cutting. The modeler will use
the software to design the pattern for the laser cut
object at his home, e-mail that CAD file to the
company, and the company will send the laser cut
object to the customer. This was being developed with
strutures in mind, but I'd imagine there would be some
freight car possiblities.

Did anyone else see this?

What materials can be cut like this?

Is this any use for making resin patterns?
