Guys, I don't know if you noticed, but Chris is a professional guitar luthier.

It would be awesome if you shared your complete FreeCAD file Chris, but I would understand if you didn't want to, if this is your livelihood.

And thanks for sharing your methods! :)

P.S. How did you create that rendering, with Inkscape?

Thank you Chris. I see now. Anyway this is not I wanted to do. I want my body shape and whole guitar would be 100% parametric, controlled via spreadsheet. :) I am a crazy gui :) I just can't find a beautifull way to parametrically sculpt the deck. In fact it's the last thing, that stops me.

Yes, the render is made with Inkscape.

Your mastery of Inkscape is impressive Chris!

Thanks again for sharing your FreeCAD model. It's already downloaded and opened in FreeCAD. It will certainly be useful when I finally decide to model mine! :)
