Hi, I started designing guitars to go down the cnc route. Just started to evaluate Rhino (win)and a few other programs before I buy. I quite like the Rhino interface so before I go much further I thought I’d try some curved tops. I’ve done a few models that I found easy like tele and strats etc, and even necks on anything I find rather straight forward on Rhino. When I create a guitar top thats flat its no issue, just tried using fillet edge and surface blend, all gets good results, BUT I’m having a problem with joining curved panels to create a seamless join when viewed in render. I’ve tried to keep the curves simple, rebuilt them, etc etc and using sweep 2 is getting the best results. Heres a few screen shots to explain and a simple practice model that I made to evaluate if I could get this to work. I do know that this will CNC with no issues but purely as a modelling evaluation for me, I’d like to see if I can get this join perfect.

Any suggestions please and bear in mind I’ve only just started with Rhino, and yes I downloaded Level 1 and 2 books but I cant see how to fix this…
