It seems to be an old, dead project, but today I found the MakerPlane, a project to build an open source plane design that seems to have been abandoned unfinished 5 years ago. (makerplane.org)

The thing that seems really interesting to me is the CNC cut composite construction, but I am having trouble finding information about that construction method.

Does anyone know of other projects using that construction? Any books or websites I can find about CNC cut composite (or just cut composite) construction?

Thanks for any information you can offer.

You'll find it more in the RC world. He had a upsized rc 3axis hotwire system.

There's a fold-a-plane concept that's similar done full scale.

I'd love to see a continuation of the makerplane, cnc cut foam with prepreg laid over and vacuum bagged could make one heck of a strong and light structure.
