Creating a Guitar Body with RhinoCAM, new tutorial


Creating a Guitar Body with RhinoCAM with Taylor Hokanson
New course available on

Are you interested in making your own instruments? Do you want to see how computer-aided fabrication results in real-world products? This course is for you. Educator/DIY engineer Taylor Hokanson demonstrates how to use RhinoCAM to prepare a 3D model of an electric guitar body/neck for later fabrication on a CNC mill. This project covers a variety of techniques, including flip milling, profiling, pocketing, horizontal roughing, and parallel finishing, and shows how to adjust the model to account for third-party components like pickups.

Topics include:
  •  Setting up and editing the model
  • Adding bridges for flip milling
  • A variety of two-axis and three-axis machining operations
  • Simulating and troubleshooting multiple tool paths
