Example 1.

Yacht model plywood framework for laser cut.

For building the hull and the following planking the drawings were made for laser cutting of 5 mm plywood.

3D model

First, the 3D hull model (outer surface) was designed.

Then the inner surface was designed by subtracting the planking thickness. The inner surface was then used to develop the plywood frames.

Example 2.

Frigate hull design for "shell on thick frames"™ method.

The purpose was to build Swedish frigate hull using "shell on thick frames"™ method. This method logically derives from A. Baranov's "shell on billet" method, being more rational for single model construction.

3D model

First, a 3D hull model was created, which was used to check for smooth hull and basic components arrangement.

3D model

Then cross-sections were added in positions of the frames considering the material thickness (10 mm plywood). Frames' top surfaces are worked to the same height to rest on a board which makes the basement for the construction.

Framing on the basement.

Framing in assembly.

Planking with pinewood planks using glue and staple gun. Quick and easy.

Fully planked hull (first planking) with the basement removed.


The hull is ready for the second planking. Excessive amounts of frames are removed, gun ports are cut.
