Woodpecker for timber fabrication

Woodpecker, developed by designtoproduction, is a plug-in for Grasshopper that enables users to extend their parametric models seamlessly into fabrication.

It offers a number of GH components that can turn input geometry into fabrication data in BTL (Building Transfer Language) format, a free standard for timber fabrication that offers a wide range of timber processings, including 5-axis contours. It is notably not machine-specific, can be read by LignoCam and other CAM softwares and is usually created by timber-specific CAD softwares such as cadwork or SEMA.

Thanks to Hanno and Fabian. That's an excellent definition for cnc data export out of Rhino. Looking forward seeing woodpecker working with solid surface.
