2D CNC - Acoustic Instr.

We are now offering all of our Acoustic and Classic Guitar Plans, Ukulele Plans, and Mandolins to our customers interested in using them for their CNC milling operations. We have had many requests for these files and the time has now come!

File Formats:
DWG
DXF

Both formats will be included in one download and is easily unzipped. Both formats will include all the layers required for easy separation into the Tool Paths you will need for your CNC software. These files can be loaded into your CAD program for editing as well. and are easily modified with AutoCAD 2000 and later, and most other CAD programs. If your CAD system or CNC software will read either DXF or DWG files, they will work for you.

Note that these are not just DXF & DWG files that we have written from our drawings that we use to produce the PDF plans. These are files that are specifically designed to work with CNC software by stripping out the unusable extraneous information of text, dimensions, lines etc.. You are left with clean, closed vector entities and only the layers you will need for importing into your CAD system or CNC software.
