I am new to CNC machining and design work. I have recently designed a 3D skiff I intend on building using Rhino software. Now that I have completed the design, I have begun stripping the boat into its various 2D parts and pieces.
I am curious as to how I get from this stage in the design to a workable and readable format that Maslow can use. All of the parts and pieces will be cut out of 4’x8’ sheets of either 1/4” or 3/8” plywood. Does this mean that in Rhino, must I transfer all parts (framing, stringers, transom, etc.) of the skiff onto a 4’x8’ rectangle resembling what will be a sheet of plywood in the real world? Or simply leave all of the parts and pieces standing alone, ensuring that all have dimensions which can be cut from a single sheet of wood?
Really don’t know any of the ins and outs of the whole process, but very interested in learning. I have seen talk here and there about .dxf files and g-code. Rhino gives me the option to export my file currently into a .dxf file, is this all Maslow requires? Or must I still work the file into something else Maslow can understand?
Thank you in advance
