Hopefully these will work now- rough and ready but it gives an idea of the potential
downunder - I had previously only made stunt kites and put patches on my trousers.
@Stefmorris, thanks for your reply much appreciated. No need to try that again. And better to invest time in an alternative way of getting accurate cut panels efficiently.stefmoris wrote: ↑Thu May 04, 2017 5:23 pmHi Peert, I have plotted to 42gsm ripstop (I'm foil kites) with a regular roll fed sign cutter/pen plotter and had a lot of material slippage resulting in sloppy tolerances.
@pantau= thanks for your awesome contribution here and I look forward to trying your software when it's ready!
There is not much difference between 9 and 15 in the matter of difficulty. It's more a matter of cost, workbench size, time etc.kalliespidahl wrote: ... Is it easier to sew a bigger kite rather than going smaller?
It works fine for dacron but not for spinnaker (cutting and plotting). Most of the plotters are not as wide as the sailcloth so you have to cut the cloth in half.Peert wrote: did you try to use a conventional paper plotter to plot cut and sew marks on kite fabric?
It takes me around 5h to cut all the panels (sail, LE, struts) for the GO in size 9. So there is not that much time to be saved if you only want to sew one kite.Peert wrote: But it is 2017 must be possible to source a laser cutter service within economical limits...
