    The working methods in timber construction have changed from manual processing to mostly CNC machining. Consequently, CAD drawing programs are predominantly used today and plans are created digitally from the very beginning. The new STE-Compact publication «Plan representation in timber construction», which was developed under the direction of Lukas Rüegsegger, is an aid for collaboration in timber construction.
