Connect the ends of the straight lines. I also copied the radius from the bottom to the top too.
drew a line across the 16 fret
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.
I need a transition from the 16th fret to the centerline.
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.
This is cool to watch. opcorn smiley:
I drew an arc back at the 15 fret the same way
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.
Now the hard part...the peghead....to be continued.
Hey Marty, can your CAM software import STL files from other 3D CAD packages? I use solid works. Looking great btw!
Thanks Brian.... I'm self taught....Yes, Rhino can do that. I save the files as an stl for meshcam too.
Very interesting stuff!
Wow. Very cool stuff..
Nice work Marty , thats what I need to start learning , after the Challenge guess I have to start looking for 3D Cad/Cam programs .
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.
