... I decided to do a quick mockup of a Geddy Combustion (Geddy [i:15ccs7gx]C?[/i:15ccs7gx] :wink: ) just for fun. [img:15ccs7gx]http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/3743/combustiongl.jpg[/img:15ccs7gx] I've seen a lot of boutiques with the Geddy look, but every one of them was a Jazz. I thought it might be interesting to see what a non-Jazz Geddy would look like, so here she is. :P

[quote="Jjango":2km1tsjq]Hi guys, sorry for the tardy responses to PMs, I've been positively buried in work this last week. I'd much rather be doing Dingwall mockups (much more fun than work!), but alas, bills have to be paid. :evil: Bocete, I'm loving the stuff you're doing in Rhino. I can't believe you're a beginner in that app, is it really that easy? I just bookmarked the demo from the link provided by TheGrandEnigma, but it will probably be a while before I even get a chance to install it. :([/quote:2km1tsjq] Well, I've got a knack for geometry, but I'm all but a designer. Never have been, or even tried. Yesterday I've made the pickup, and the body. The lower horn recess took me a while. Now I've made the headstock and the neck, and am working on the joint between them. The easy stuff is very easy, as Rhino has plenty of compound operations that you can do by hand, step by step, or in two clicks. My favorite tool is the 2-rail sweep, where you use two arbitrary curves as rails, and select curves through which you want the surface to go while running on those rails. The resulting surface is perfect. It's impossible what can you do with it. Try and see :D

I've played some more with a SuperSR5. Here are the work in progress pics. There are no neck or headstock, only a floating fretboard. Oh, and some surfaces seem "bloated"; it's a result of using quick progress renders in Rhino. It will be smooth on a final render in V-Ray. [url:1j6mfm84]http://picasaweb.google.com/bocic.ivan/SuperSR5?feat=directlink[/url:1j6mfm84] Once I'm done with the headstock and the neck I'll post full pictures. ...maybe a new thread should be opened. I'll do so for the next update.

No, I believe that is [url=http://www.rhino3d.com/:1bjw5uco]Rhino[/url:1bjw5uco]. [url=http://www.dingwallguitars.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1253:1bjw5uco]This[/url:1bjw5uco] is Inventor. My bass has about as much work done on it as Bocete has done on his. Inventor isn't really made for visualization, where as that is exactly what Rhino is made for.

Looks good Bo. I'll be getting Rhino as soon as I'm out of school. Looks like a fun tool.

Hey, I've managed to force-feed new drivers into my laptop. I had to hack both the OS and the drivers to make it happen. Anyway, here's what can be created in two hours, by an amateur, without using a mouse - only the touchpad. My mouse is in repair. The scale - 36"-33". You can see the 12th and the 24th fret marks. The dots present the 22 frets. [img:26cmwse5]http://lh4.ggpht.com/_ycCeFTJWlq8/S1OnNneeBBI/AAAAAAAAALw/WtZ5QaeVSwI/s800/001%20-%20Fretboard%20%26%20Scale.png[/img:26cmwse5] The bridge - not done yet.

Oh, I was just making a joke, had no idea you were actually having PC problems - that sucks. :( Thanks for the Toshiba head's up. I'm finishing school this summer, and I'll be buying a new desktop and lots of snazzy programs! Can't wait!

[quote="TheGrandEnigma":f7sp6ffb]Looks good as always, Jj. You got the skills, that's for sure! How about candy tangerine with maple fretboard and no fret markers with matching headstock? You could probably ask $5 or something per render and make a couple bucks on here. I'd pay. Bocete, Rhino won't load for you or what? :P[/quote:f7sp6ffb] When I've bought my laptop I've given my desktop to my sister. When I start Rhino on my laptop, everything is black apart from the toolbars. Not surprising: my laptop is Toshiba, and they've got a contract with all the hardware manifacturers that only Toshiba may issue drivers for their laptops. I don't know why, but it's like that. My GPU drivers haven't been updated since 2007 AFAIK. Lazy bastards. The point: Toshiba laptops are a no-no. Pretty much any 3D can overheat it and shut it down in half an hour. I had the urge the other day to create a Dingwall Stingray. 36"-33" scale, with a SR5 body and a SR4-like pickguard. I started designing a headstock with that "feel" but lighter and more compact, but got bored: what's the point when I cannot model it. But, there is hope. With some luck, Starcraft 2 will be out this summer. Hopefully I'll have graduated by then and buy a high-end desktop. Months later, when I'm done with SC2, I'll be making a SuperSR5 :) And yes, a D-Bird V mockup, please :)

Nice! I wouldn't complan having one. Now, to start what these threads always turn out to be: can you make C2 with the natural, glossy finish we've seen and a wooden pickguard? Of some nice wood, a tad darker than the body. Thanks :D
