hi peeps I've just joined the site and i could do with some complete noob help. right i have this design and a few different versions of it (different perpendicular fret positioning) im having a real hard time working out how to determine the bridge angle from fretfind2d information, what calculations do i do and where do i find the exact numbers i need to for this? i will be using a 7 string hipshot multiscale hardtail bridge and i'm stuck not being able to figure out whether i need the 11, 18, 21 or 26 degree bridge. i imagine this is a stupid thing but i haven't done much math properly in about 16 years so i'm just stuck on stupid and need some advice lol. once i know how to do the calculations for my bridge angle i can do the rest and become familiar with the routine. i appreciate any help you guys can give me. 26-27.5 scale perpendicular fret - 12 - 30 frets.pdf

Yeh tbh once I've gotten used to using rhino it'll be easier for me to not use FretFind2D anymore. I'm definitely In2in that live stream, do you have a set date? Even if I have finished doing my stuff I'll still watch as I'm sure I will learn some interesting things. Thabks for you response. Ben

It's mainly I'm using it as It's an easy way to get the basic fretboard shapes done. I really appreciate this information though and I shall give it a go now, I've had rhino for a few days so it's still quite alien to mme.jusr a question Chris while your about, how do i set an object to snap at 90 degrees intervals when rotating? I still have a lot of things to look up but this would be super useful to start doing. Thanks again Ben

You my friend are a star, thank you for confirming this for me, I shall give this method a try though I believe your right. I'll get back to you if I'm still having troubles but think I should be alright now.

Haha I'm just doing that atm, to be honest I had 54 degrees at one point during our attempts at calculating so I assumed it was from this lol. At the moment I'm getting 68 degrees from 26-27.5 with a perpendicular 7th fret, 3mm equal overhang, 44mm and 63.297mm string spacings. This gives me 158 The only way I can think of getting between 18-26 degrees is making the perpendicular fret around the 20th fret to reduce the angle.

Hi thank you, me and my fiancee did do it this way once, so I was using the correct number but I was expecting to get something nearer 18-26 degrees. Is it because I have 30 frets that the number is where it is?
