on model plane plans: i just realised you could use one of those laser cutter things and make yourself a pre-cut kit from a plan.
is that common practice? i've been trying to think of a use for one ever since a shop opened up locally.

I haven't done it personally but it would be ideal. One of my long term projects is a designing a teardrop trailer kit (1:1) where all the curvy pieces can be cutout with either a laser cutter or CNC router.

What, and miss out on all the cut fingertips and sawdust? X-acto perdition!
