Are there versions of these plans that don’t need Origin?
Currently, all Premium Projects incorporate Origin. Some also feature Workstation. It is possible to build the projects without Origin, but this will require some deviation from the provided instructions.
What software do I need to access the files?
All you need is Origin! The 2D files are ready to cut and will be available on your tool once you purchase a Premium Project. You’ll need a 3D modeling program in order to open the 3D models which are included with the project. The technical drawings are provided in PDF and you’ll be able to view them on any compatible tablet or desktop.
Can I modify the files?
You are more than welcome to edit any of the files provided. However, keep in mind that all build instructions apply only to the original versions of the files! Note that you are not permitted to redistribute your modified files in any way.
Can I print the instructions and the bill of materials?
Not at this time. You can access our web-based instructions on your mobile, tablet or desktop device.
