    I disagree about someone mass-producing parts. When I buy plans, I'm buying a license to use the plans to build one airplane. If I want to build another plane of the same type for a family member,...

    Thanks much for your answers. My only concern with copyright is that it is possible to make parts without the original plans. I certainly wouldn't expect the code for free from the vendor, either the...

    Those images look really nice. How easy is it to run your files on a machine made by a different company? Now that you have your parts optimized, I'd think you could give or sell those files to...

    So there's no way to get (eventually) a file that could be sent to any shop and run? I'm not talking about a guy like me, who knows very little, creating a solidworks file that needs to be cleaned...

    CNC plans - DIY kit? Thoughts?

    Just an idea, but it would be cool to have airplane plans as whatever code is needed to run various CNC machines. A metal plane might work well. We could get matched holes, and potentially maximize...
