Composite Ply Design encompasses the three-dimensional construction of complex composite components. The 3D models form the basis for all data relevant to the manufacturing process, such as the ply book (design) and cutter and laser files. The laser file is used in the positioning of a ply (material cutting) on the form. With the help of the laser, the outer contours are projected on to the form.
