Hey guys -
I’ve been re-working and attempting to surface this guitar back for some time. I get busy w/ other projects and then find space to go at it again but essentially meet the same obstacles.
I believe all of my intersecting points are good (top line near the cutaway could possibly need some tweaking) but all in all, I think the framework is fairly solid.
Surface > Curve Network produces ‘ok’ results but leaves strange bits near the cutaway.
‘Patch’ seems to produce the best result (screenshot below) but there are some ‘dimples’ on the surface (as seen near the re-curve) that I’d like to smooth out.
My questions are as follows:
Is there a better surfacing operation I should be using or a better method to get a smooth surface, ready for machining?
Is it possible to go in afterwards and manipulate the surface (or is this the long way 'round)?
My goal is to machine this into MDF (convex) to make a mold upon which to vacu-form a 3-ply veneer for a guitar backplate.
Thanks in advance (I can up the 3dm file if it’s helpful).
