    Connect the ends of the straight lines. I also copied the radius from the bottom to the top too.

    Drew a centerline down the neck toward the nut. I drew two lines up from the nut 13/16" tall. Then I drew a line to connect those two lines so it looks like a staple.

    Next I wanted to draw lines where a fretboard would be if I decided to use one. The lines in red are .25" up from the flat fretboard plane.

    And a transition from the 16th fret to the fretboard on the side....I just arbitrarily drew these to fret 15.

    I draw an arc from the nut/side edge to the centerline at the apex of the arc back down to the nut at the other side of the fretboard plane. I put a couple points there to show where the curve of the shaft will be at the fretboard glue line.

    I adjusted the lines from the two arcs along what would be the fretboard taper.

    It seems one drawing is missing...anyway I got rid of the rectangular lines and construction points and cleaned up the wireframe.

    Hey Marty, can your CAM software import STL files from other 3D CAD packages? I use solid works. Looking great btw!

    To surface the wire frame in Rhino, in this case I click on the two arcs and 2 straight lines after clicking on curve network. The surface is highlighted in yellow.

    Same thing for the transition. Curve Network- click on the 3 arcs. Hit enter.
