An Easy Way To Copy Guitars!


Recommended Posts

I worked this out last night and it seemed to work for scaling up some pictures, provided they where taken looking straight on at the guitar.

First you get something on the guitar that you know is a definite size like the scale length, if its in inches convert it too MM. Then you then measure the scale length on the picture, divide this number into the real scale length and then to get to the real size times any measurement on the picture by the number you just got.

:D

ahahahahaha. lol. nice going. not trying to put down, but its a little obvious about how to "scale to size" a picture. And it has been mentioned before. and use CAD so you can put it on a CNC, then make a copy of a guitar really fast and in real life instead of a picture.

Not trying to put down or anything. At least you mentioned the math behind how to do it if people were lost.

Also have to be careful. I have a pretty decent digital cam, but I know for a fact the lens has a tendancy to fisheye the image. More so around the outside of the image, but it is there. Most noticeable on pictures of large straight buildings and such.. It's a good starting point but don't trust it with critical measurements!
