Jigs and Plugs

After seeing @jeff_hammond Jeff’s fabrication sequence, which I find more interesting than finished renders (although the renders are fantastic) and the fact that I use Rhino as a work-horse and hardly ever render, here is a sequence for the external mouldings on a motorhome I worked on recently.

Fantastic work and a great presentation, thank you for posting :+1:

Well done!
I like it so much!
Thanks for sharing.

very interesting.

Hi Basil, That makes it all worthwhile, especially when you own a 3-axis. Here is another example which turned out very well:
