  1. Hi everyone, I have an stl file of a guitar neck that needs reverse engineered into surface or solid. Catia and Solidworks and Maya and Rhino, Meshlab Freecad various photoscan programs have failed, could be me,ha ha. All I need is the back of the neck and the trasitions from the head and foot like the one picture shown to run an endmill on it without violating the rest of the neck on that side.Any help would be great. Thank you for your time.
  2. Hey All, I am working on a 3D model of a pool floor for a project that to be supported by walls. I have just started to use surface modelling and I thought I would give it a go using it, when I have gone to convert it to a 3D solid using the sculpt tool I get the error message "Modeling Operation Error: Operation did not add or remove material. Solid creation failed, no watertight volume detected." I am well a wear of what this means but I can't find the gap/hole anywhere. If you could help me out in locating them it would be much appreciated, also any tips and trick to surface modelling would be also appreciated. 3D model is attached. Pool Floor2.dwg
  3. Hi all, I'm new to this forum so forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong place! I'm also new to Autocad and trying to self tutor myself. What I'm wanting to do is experiment with the network surface modelling tool. I can make a surface but not the way I want to as CAD tells me: "Cannot create a network surface from the selected curves." Is there something I should know? Do only splines work? I've tried with a combination of lines, arcs and splines to get the shape I want. Thanks in advance for your help
