2. Pattern


When you select Ryman Composites to assist or manage your project, depending on your stage of development you can engage with us at any phase of the process.

Our project map starts with design and works through the other stages. See below for the Prototype and Pattern Component stages that we believe should be considered and incorporated into a complete project flow:

Work from this stage assumes that a finished approved design is complete and signed off. 3D Models, release angles and all details checked. IGES files are available to be sent for machine path creation.
