    Carved Guitar Top(PRS)

    Brian Gainer

      Hello all,

       

           I'm a high school student wanting to carve a guitar on a CNC machine.  I am fairly new to the program(2013) and have only been messing around with it for a couple months.  The problem I'm having is finding a command/feature to fit my needs and make my model to accomodate the command.  I've used extruded cuts to try and acheive what I want to do to no avail.  I am not very sure what the Boundary command does, from my experience its like the lofted command. I'm not sure what it is capable of. Attached(hopefully) is an idea of the curvature of the guitar.  The carved portion is a 3/4" maple top. Any help would be very much appreciated! http://prsguitars.com/sunburst22/img/main1.jpg

          Brian,

           

          Yes, the Boundary Solid or Surface is like the Loft Solid or Surface. It usually works better than the Loft, although there are a few cases where a Loft is better. For your project, Boundary will probably work best. You are quite likely to find that working with surfaces is better than with solids. The Fill Surface is quite likely to be very helpful.
