Molds and prototypes
Quick update to show some photos of molds and the laminating process. Progress is much slower than planned and we experienced some setbacks – technical and scheduling – but things are moving and slowly improving.
Data management and a workpiece model
Data management issues and the development of a flexible workpiece model to cross-reference and contain fabrication data for individual glulam components.
