    Guitar neck and heel transition

    Hi all, I have Catia and Mastercam, and need to know the best approach on making the neck and heel look like they are suppose to. Thank you for your help.

    Trim your neck back to the nut. Then trim an inch of two of the headstock. Face Loft with tangent continuity. If that doesn't work. Break the solid models in to smaller parts. Loft 1/2 of the neck to headstock then the other half. Lofting edges or face to face will give you some nice blends.

    I got it fixed, just had to redraw the radius and extrude it.
