    I'm seeking software that generates exportable profile patterns (cross-sectional contours) of an object rendered in 3 space. I know an old woodworker who would appreciate the ability to build projects out of laminations of plywood similar to layered manufacturing or rapid prototyping, except without a CNC router or a 3D printer. Any ideas? Thanks from Michigan.

    Rhino and the command Section.
    Or AutoCAD/Bricscad.

    Section your 3D model and send the 2D profiles to cnc cutting.
