Welcome to my brand new guitar building website!
My name is Simon and I am the author and publisher of GuitARTS.de.
My profession – for more than three years now – is being a trainer and consultant for Siemens PLM products. Before I started being on the road to visit my company’s’ customers, I have been working for a plant manufacturer, doing industrial design and consulting our customers. The CAD software in use was Siemens NX, to create complex bottle designs, which our machines were producing. It is a great pleasure an still a bloody issue, creating goods, which have to meet marketing and technical specifications at once.
Since the year 2008, I am manufacturing guitars during my spare time. Therefore I was following the traditional techniques in the past. It is hard to combine my new job and hobby while being abroad during the whole week. A solution for this problem – which doesn’t even take less time than before – is using a consistent CAD/CAM solution, which allows me to use a 3-axis CNC machine for more exactness and comfort. The first prototypes are already in production and ready for being improved.
I will share my experience on this website.
