A problem with PGs is that at the profile front or anchor points along the profile,, there is often a mylar or the like that behaves like an edge and weakens the inner of outer fabric. Stitching does it too where back and forth stitched.
That is true.
No problem about marking , I'm used to this from sleeping bags.
Ok, but I meant there is factory alignment points in seams. If and when you cut the cell there is none but you can of course mark some by yourself. Just be precise.
Now, I started to play a bit into SP and looks relatively intuitive.
Yes, basic things can be done quite easily with it.
I just aproximated the shape as I can't precisely determine the canopy curvature.
That is ok, there is actually quite a lot leeway there because foil kite cells hide small errors.
While the tip is curved and PS only accepts straight for this kite, what chord should I give?
? You can adjust canopy curve and plan shape in SP very freely, also manually.

But middle cells are much bigger than cells at tips. Is difference really that small? Hard to believe.
Sorry, I am not able to attach the .sle file as it is not an acceptable format for the forum it says?
I don't know how to do it either but it is not necessity. Designs I've presented here are just screen shots.
we will have 37 cells. I started the project in SP with that count to train a bit with the bridle
I see the SP counts as you propose; agreed
As I was able to measure the chord is 2.45m at cell 18 and 1/2.
The flat span would be 7m and projected would be 5m
the tip-1=38cm 2=62 3=85
Ok, 37 cells it is. Here is new design from these values.
