Woodpecker 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 format.
BTL (Building Transfer Language) is 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. BTL is being maintained by design2machine: design2machine.com/btl/
The Woodpecker plug-in for Grasshopper has been developed by designtoproduction for LignoCam. The plug-in is free to use for educational purposes, professional users have to purchase a license. After installing Woodpecker, an evaluation period of 10 days is granted before you have to register with LignoCam. This evaluation period is renewed with every new release of Woodpecker.
