    Recently I had an idea. I have access to Autodesk Inventor (and all other Autodesk programs for that matter) for three years. My plan is to completely design a guitar body with all the correct measurements etc on Inventor and get the guitar made by a CNC machine with wood that I choose.

    Is this a viable option? Are there places where I can pay to have a CNC machine make something using the design and materials I provide?

    That's cool, so I know it can be done...Still need to know if there are places where I can get it made once I design it though.

    You`d better start looking for the places where CNC are in your area then :agreed:
