hey gang - so, I got my new member tour last week. something I am really interested in is creating my own furniture as I remodel the interior of my Airstream trailer, specifically a convertible dinette/couch (with the table pushing down across the seats to form a couch bench) for the front end and something to cover over the, er, gaping wound I left across the upper back end as I removed the cabinets there. but as I pondered how to get started, some questions popped up:
the curvature of the front and back ends, is not “even” as far as I can tell. I think it changes as you go up and down in the z-axis. I can’t find specs or diagrams anywhere (this is a 2013 Flying Cloud 25’, btw), so I can’t rely on those. so, how do I take good measurements of these dimensions such that I can put them into computer-aided design software to do things like cut plywood with the lasers, and
what software should I be doing my design with at home before exporting it to something that the lasers (or “big” woodcutting equipment in the wood shop) can use?
I would post pics of the spots in question, but I can’t attach images or even put links into my posts according to Discourse :-/ apologies.
