Anyone have a mandolin or dreadnaught guitar(complete instrument) in a CNC format that they would be willing to sell or give.

We do have a laser scanner but our skill level is not such that we know how to convert the point cloud of a mandolin's complex compound curves in a program like Rhinocerous - Alibre to a clean stl kind of file.

Are there any expert that could or would be interested in converting this data.

Not wanting to do this to make a living just interested in playing with the instruments.


We have searched the web and the CNCzone and electric guitars are available but we have yet to find usable files for the 2 mentioned.
