You don't want to build youself skis, it's a hard thing, and if it's only for 1 or 2 or 5 pairs, I don't think it's worth the cost..You're better off with company skis, and at least with them, you have a guarantee...
What now, a signature?
^or that hes 12. either way, unless you go through like 6 pairs of skis a year, this isnt worth it. even then, its not really. its really hard to make a good ski, and prototypes cost money+time, and probably wont ride well.

we are cutting molds soon. We were gonna cut them today, but a friend stopped by and mentioned he knew a couple people with shop bots, and since I can easily make g-code from the cad models I have of the molds, we're gonna try to do it that way.
I have the whold press (frame, molds, etc.) modeled in pro/E, so I'd use the built in shit for that... I've done it before and I have the book, so I could figure it out again. if not, I could probably do it by hand, I had to do a few assignments by hand last year.
We have a few cnc machines at my school but i made all the stuff for my skis during the summer= more manual tools. g-code is so ghey when you have to handwrite it. Then again our cam program is equally terrible and works like shit.
