Obviously the first CNC guitar building process already proceeded and most of the computerized operations have finished, as I’m still practicing on my new CNC machine. I have optimized the procedure after the first run, but I am still not satisfied with my CAD structure and there is still room for optimizations. Instead of manufacturing PRS style guitars on and on, I decided to plan a new model (LP style) being documented from scratch and by use of a PDM system to store my huge amount of datasets. Especially for optimization and variance issues, it makes sense to implement Siemens’ Teamcenter for my next run. Teamcenter allows me to display and manage the product lifecycle in a more efficient and sustainable manner then by use of just an operating system like MS Windows.
