-Bezier Curve Plans-
Metal Kit Boats


Bezier Plans are arranged and delivered in four parts. They can work independent of each other or can be interchanged in the actual building process. The four elements are:

CNC Cutting Files: -------------- Flash Drive

Full Size Patterns: -------- Hard Copy on Bond Paper

Architectural Drawings: -------- Hard Copy on Bond Paper

Building Support: ------------- Email-Phone Call Away

Cnc Cutting Files:

Bezier Design virtual Kits enable you to:

  • You to negotiate the best price for materials.
  • You to negotiate the best Cnc cutting price.
  • Everything is local to you - No Shipping Charges.


Typical Cnc Files

  • True Round Shell Plating
  • Transverse Framing
  • Longintudinal Framing
  • Center Vertical Keel
  • Keel Framing
  • Keel Shoe
  • Keel Shell Plating
  • Transom Shell Plating



The below drawing shows a typical Cnc layout for the transverse frames of the Bezier 12.5.

Full Size Patterns:

Full size patterns are supplied via Bond paper and mirror the Cnc cutting files. They a printed "Full Size on 36" x required length to 50 feet.

Full size paper patterns should always be stored in a dry and warm space. They should never be allowed to become damp. Keep them protected until you are ready to transfer them to your boat building material. Always take care to prevent folds and creases.

Typical Pattern List:

  • True Round Shell Plating
  • Transverse Framing
  • Longintudinal Framing
  • Center Vertical Keel
  • Keel Framing
  • Keel Shoe
  • Keel Shell Plating
  • Transom Shell Plating

Below is the full-size pattern for the keel shell.

Architectural Drawings:

The customary architectural drawings are: the lines drawings; sailplan; exterior plan and profile; Interior arrangement plan and profile; and construction plan and profile.

Fabrication and construction advances have not diminished the necessity for architectural drawings as they are an integral part of the Bezier curve design platform. They provide considerable architectural information that cannot be conveyed in Cnc cutting files and full size patterns alone.

Sample Architectural Drawings


LINES DRAWING

A traditional version of the "Line" drawing is supplied. They are not needed for construction, but they compliment the design package.




INTERIOR PROFILE - SECTIONS - DECK PLAN

This drawing is a good visual of the Deck plan, the two watertight bulkheads, floorboards, and seating.




CONSTRUCTION PLAN AND PROFILE

This drawing is a good visual of the transverse and longitudinal frame placement.




TRANSVERSE CONSTRUCTION SECTIONS

Represented in this drawing are the eight (8) transverse frames which support the longitudinal frame work.




BUILDING STRONGBACK

This is one of the most important of the Architectural drawing. It provides the location for the transverse framing system.




BOAT CRADLE

Depending on your needs you may need a Cradle. Here is what I used.
