    Guitar Head and neck transition Solidworks Catia Mastercam

    Help please, is there a magic tool to get this to blend. I have all the software listed. I used a neck that a guy made, and designed the head and need to blend it. I have the step file of both, or like this in the pic. Thank you all.

    Hi, thank you, this is all I need fixed, is this transition on the corners. I need it to look close to the real picture. Thank you.

    the stp file had errors when opened in solidworks, well few ways to do that, first you need to redesign the handle as it's not well designed where they attach make sure it's just 1 edge attaching the two together and not very odd shaped as it is in the picture, for example the arm of the guitar needs to end with half a circle and the end of the guitar needs to be squared off, After that you can use the fillet feature in solidworks to get the look you're looking for. Hope this Helps

    "need my model fixed to cnc mill it."
    If you have one in production,
    then the transitions can be "reverse engineered/digitized" to perfection from your physical model.
    OR design something different
    Been doing this too long
