I've been having a hell of a time trying to get a simple loft to work. It's the transition from the neck to the headstock on a Telecaster guitar.
I've attached a sample file.
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
Is this what you are looking to do?
Could you attached it as a .step or .iges file. I am on SW12 still and cannot opent the file.
Sure thing, thanks!
Do a sketch on the top of the neck and convert entities. After that do an extruded surface and choose up to next with a 1deg draft. Let me know if that works for you.
Thanks Chris, but I'm looking for something a bit more exacting. (See the pics below for an example)
From what I see there isn't anything "simple" about the transition that you want to make here. It looks to me like you need a bit more information as to how the neck transitions to the head stock. I could assume that the head flows directly into the headstock, then has some fillets, but the "headstock guide 2" sketch shows that the neck actually grows.
Bottom line, you will most likely want to make this transition using surfaces, then turn them into solids. You'll need more sketches though to control how the transition works.
Will this work.
here is a guitar body from the surfacing training files also.
Thanks for the replys and suggestions so far.
For reference, here's a pic of what the end result should be:
Normally I don't have any issues, but that's with a loft from a single face on the neck to a single face on the headstock with the three guide curves.
This one's throwing me for a loop due to the four faces on the headstock side.
Have you ever messed around with sketch pictures?
Yup, for this one I did.
That's pretty much exactly the result I was looking for. Much cleaner than the various lofts/boundary surfaces/combines I was trying. Great job & thank you!
