verhoevenc Posted March 10, 2010 Report Share Posted March 10, 2010 Ok, so Rhino is kicking my butt today and for the life of me I can't figure out why. Essentially what I did was create the taper for the fingerboard, extruded it up to 1/4" thick, and then did a boolean with a cylinder to create the radius on it's surface face. All that went off without a hitch. I then put little matching archs at each of the fret points. I then drew a rectangle in the shape of what I want my fret slots to be and sweeped it along each of these archs to create square fret slots curved to match the 12" radius of the board so they're equal depth at all spots. I then used a cut plane to cut off all these guys 1/16" in from the edges of the fretboard so that I can have an unbound board but still no fret slots showing at the sides. This is where the problems started... I have to boolean difference these "slot solids" with the board in order to actually make the slots. But for the life of me I can't get the boolean difference to frickin' work! I've tried everything! These damned things won't take the stupid chunks out of the board to create the slots!!! I've tried joining the, planar hole capping them... NOTHING works!!! Any suggestions you guys? If anyone feels like taking a peak at the file that works to I can always email it over.
