A local luthier has asked if I could carve the rough stages of a les paul top carve. He currently does this by hand but is looking to save time. I understand plans can be purchased for CNC ready files, but as we’re only roughly contouring the body they aren’t necessary. I have the topography image and know the depths of each layer.
Initially I was thinking I could export as an .svg and use easel’s fill function do to each layer, however, as the paths need to be joined, this makes things difficult as the paths would share boundaries. I COULD make separate files for each layer and cut them individually but that seems like more trouble than it’s worth?
Does anyone have any ideas or input?
Thanks in advance
