*) The 8’x8′ Shelter design have been released, using a new and very powerful method for toolpathing in collaboration with the fine folks at Vectric software. Vectric is the creators of the fantastic VCarve toolpathing software that we use to design and toolpath all the Shelter 2.0 designs, and for the 8×8 they have tagged the files so that they can be opened and toolpathed in their free trial version. This allows anyone to work with our files without owning CAD or CAM software. Download the zip file
*) The 8×8 version files are available in dxf format from DropBox at http://bit.ly/Shelter20_8x8_dxf. The assembly and cutting instructions above apply, although any toolpath information is lost and layers may be a bit wonky
*) The Lima version of Shelter 2.0 is an updated version of the original Shelter 2.0 design that simplifies the construction and shortens the cutting time. Those files are also available on Github at https://github.com/wlyoung/Lima-Shelter-20

*) A materials list for the 3 versions we offer files for is available in a Google Doc. Since it’s an open source/ open design project there is quite a bit of flexibility in how the Shelter 2.0 design is built, based on location and use case, so not all materials have been included.
We haven’t included any prices because it varies so much with local material availability and the quantity ordered, especially with fasteners. There should however be enough info in there to get a pretty good idea of cost.
