    Yeah I have no idea how to make the code. i was just going to make card stock templates and then take them somewhere. Is there a software I can scan in the stuff or build it in?

    Solid Edge is what we were "taught" to use. They have a program within that you can draw a template for whatever you want to cut, it takes into account the size of the plasma cutter and whatnot then it writes a code. You plug the computer up to it and the program will run itself once you zero out the axis. I think we get a student addition of Solid Edge for free so I am not sure how much it runs on regular user, but it is a very useful software.

    I was reading over a TTORA a lot of LT guys talking about boxing frame so I figured Id post in here my question. In order to box the frame lets say for the rear, pretty much you take a measurement of the frame and cut out of some sheets of 1/8" thick metal then weld them on? Or is there a bigger picture I am missing here?
