Use the ply fit lookup table below to reduce a model by a specific ply fit.

Generally, 1 ply is 0.38 mm in thickness. We recommend selecting all regions, then reducing by the associated thickness. See chart below:

Ply

0.38

2

0.76

3

1.14

1.52

3.8

One other suggestion:

  • In general a 3mm liner is a 6ply reduction, a 6mm liner is a 9ply reduction, and a 9mm liner is 12ply reduction.
