One might consider such plans as well fussed over IP and most likely not a gift from the shoemakers elves,
hence, as such, folks who paid the price are reluctant to turn them loose into the wild . . .
sure there are other guys who can do it - but it's been done and not likely to be much improved upon, so move onto something else
Pandora's Box effect
Now Bill Ftizmaurice's plans are also subject to IP considerations ,
and no doubt someone out there has made a copy or 2 but gee. by golly, I saved a whole 15 bucks- who wants to sell out a small portion of integrity for $15 . . really? that little?
but they're not CNC- and don't need to be- they are superlative acoustic and structural engineering made accessible for a nominal price and well worth it
especially for inexperienced builders whose mindset of IITP will let them achieve great woofage by their own hands and for a tremendous ROI .
IIRC, you might find plans for a CNC GHorn V2, as I recall a build from about 2+ years ago by a forgotten AVS'er , LA area, iirc, who needed to knock a sub together "right now!" .
I'd have to look around on another drive for that V2 sketchup but it's not CNC
and yes, the GSGAD flatpacks are that instant accessibility . . .
but that business was in development for well over 1 1/2 years- there were a lot of dots to connect
but the Marty design(s) , originally, also evolved to be maximally idiot proof . . . tho YMMV
why not drag a Marty cutsheet diagram over to makerspace . . eliminates a few hours of measuring , cutting, cleaning up
add 5-6 dozen Kreg screws, 2 tubes of PL3, some paint if needed , wires, connectors-
shouldn't be too hard . . . a good hands on learning experience
there is always Khan Academy- they may a have a course for learning to develop layout / program CNC.
