I better start off with a warning.If you haven't already figured it out, I'm kind of a nut about patterns.Long before I owned a CNC, I made hundreds of them.As a furniture maker, I really use and rely on them.
The rule in my shop is that if you need to make two of anything or if there's even the slightest chance you might make something again, I make a pattern.I've found that patterns are critical for accurate and efficient furniture making.
But, they can be much more than a template that you use for shaping parts; particularly if you use a CNC to make them.By adding precision details and other important information to the patterns they become invaluable for project organization, smart workflow and, bonus: they help prevent you from making mistakes.
If you want to make patterns better, add precision alignment.Accurate markers really help.As your parts acquire more shape or have no straight lines and are curved in every direction, markers are even more important.
Once you enter the world of CNC cut patterns with everything accurate to .001 or better, you can use precision for much more than just an outside shape....
