    When we laser scan and reverse engineer templates we're not talking desk top scanners ;)
    Templates > DXF files > CAD/CAM > Waterjet blanks

    This is kind of old technology but here's an example of a G-10 template to dxf. It will still require a small amount of secondary edit work in a CAD software package to fine tune the details. Once fine tuned it can be used to manufacture blanks on CNC equipment. We've done a ton of folder and fixed blade parts with excellent results.

    They were exact as far as I could tell.
