just fyi, next time you make more cf stuff, try to keep the weave clean and diagonal. right now the "diagonal weave" ended up going vertical so it's sorta awkward looking.
What happen was, when I did the flat sheet, I forgot to cut the CF ina 45 degree angle and made it vertical (0 degree angle in aero*******.
After cured I tried to give it a little angle when tracing it but didn't have ebough room, and that's the best I could do .

The two small yellow lines that you see, are trace line. They are use to identify which face goes up or down and to guide you when cutting it on different angles. I tried to remove them before curing it but it was impossible.

You guys are too picky JK
