Guitar Test Cut


This is the first cut I made using MeshCAM.

This is awesome software by the way. I’m still learning it but I’m already very ¬†impressed (more on this later).

This is a cut for guitar electronics installation so it will actually be inside the guitar.

I am finishing up the rewiring of my larger mill right now so I decided to run the test cut on my Poly mill.

It will be out of sight so it’s not really important if it looks good. But it does. It’s smooth as a baby’s bum.

It was very satisfying to see the MeshCAM tool path which included a rough pass, a waterline to create a smooth surface and a pencil cut to clean all the corners.

Installing electronics on a guitar


A friend of mine needs some work done on his guitar.

He needs a pocket cut in it to make way for electronics.

In the pictures you can see the Sketchup image of the pocket.

I used MeshCAM to make the toolpaths.

You can see the toolpath in the black image (I used NCPlot to render that).
