    Traveled to NC to interview for this job. Money no object??? I was told I wouldn't 'fit in' this company. This job does not exist. There is no place to loft.

    Wouldn't it be a shame if disgruntled former employees (or customers, as we've obviously seen in a couple of other threads) ruined it for the rest of us. Too much of this sort of stuff and those in the industry won't want to know about us.
    Put up, or shut up - no, just plain bugger off!:mad:

    I agree with this last post. I personally interviewed for this company and they certainly DO have loft space and they certainly are quality conscience in the utmost. IF you have the talent and the experience and the desire to so called "fit in" you can indeed have a good job with this company. The staff and crew were the best and Wilmington is a great and growing place.

    Why not CAL?

    What do you need loft space for these days?

    I would assume you would use CAD and CNC to do Computer Aided Lofting - at least use full size Mylar patterns or 2D CNC wood patterns if not full 5 axis routing.

    Traditional lofting is a dying art. Why not CAD? There is no such thing as a round line in computer language. The soul of the boat begins with the full size loft.

    Maybe so, but CAL/NCC is less expensive, gets good, extremely accurate,documented shapes and can be used to automatically make parts or plugs.

    I am, by the way, a traditionally trained lofter as well, as are most of the CAL/NCC lofters I know.
