    T-Rex Plans

    The plans I used are available at www.makecnc.com, this is a good resource for
    Hobby CNC users, please note I have no affiliation with this company, I came upon them after a google search.

    The plans come in several formats, for me I used DXF so I could import them into AutoCAD.

    Modifying Plans

    My first steps was to modify the plans for use with the current wood stock I had available which was sheets of 3mm – 3.4mm Plywood at 300mm x 210mm.

    In AutoCAD I drew a rectangle of 300mm x 210mm to represent the wood stock, I then placed all of the components into one of these rectangles, in my case I needed 4 rectangles.
