Main purpose
Menu File > New > xxx

Jedicut allow you to cut elliptical shape. This functionality is very complete end it will be improve.

To do this, Jedicut use a new file format which extension is JDF. Actualy you can only cut half “fuselage”. There are several assembly method :

  • Flat junction,
  • Triangular junction.

This screen shot seems to be complicated but you only have to configure 2 shapes using external and internal characteristics. You only have to respect one rule :

le dessus + le Y de l'ellipse supérieure = le dessous + le Y de l'ellipse inférieure.

The 2 half pieces can be hollowed out or not. Jedicut offer 3 choices :

  • no hollow,
  • constant thickness,
  • specific internal cut.

Important : You need to click on “Applicate” button in order to validate and visualize each shape.

Note : Cut wizard isn’t working yet with this kind of cut.
