Managing dataset import and export with excel, csv, sql ? best practices ?

sorry if this is potentially a stupid question. i'm having difficulties finding useful threads, not sure how exactly which terms i should search for.i have different collections of data, either as…Continue

Guitar Nut conundrum: equal spaces and equal centers question
53 Replies

hello,i'm playing around trying to make a nut-slot template maker for guitars. Basically there are two ways to cut the little grooves on the top end of the guitars neck (the nut):…Continue

Looking for a simple way to generate one type of spur gear in different sizes

hello,i have been using the Rhino 'gears' script for a while to generate my spur gears but i would really like to be able to generate them in GH. I have looked at many sites on how to calculate the…Continue

"Added another pair of offset tables for the intersection points along the edges ('eBass' and 'eTreble') of the extended frets.  I added a 'Frets' cluster to get fret points along the same edge, to see if they…"

"Thank you, sir, that is high praise indeed! The model evolved from your original question about keeping the same gap between six strings of different diameters (gauges).  Then different length bass and treble scales were added, to be aligned by…"

"The "virtual loom" uses the same string spacing algorithm we started with, including string widths (gauges), so the strings are positioned correctly with respect to the centerline, right? V2 edge space code does a better job because the…"

"well, it's the whole that matters not only the strings :-) the thing with the 'equal spaces' nut conundrum is that the fretboard width defines the nut width and a perfect nut will have equal spaces between string edges as well as…"

Joseph Oster replied to discopimp's discussion Guitar Nut conundrum: equal spaces and equal centers question
"Maybe it's not so obvious...  In the first versions of code I posted to this thread, I assumed that edge spacing was one half the gap between strings at the nut and bridge.  Later, that changed to two distance sliders.  In any…"

"Fret spacing is now ruled by the strings, not by the outer edges.  More accurate, isn't it?"

"if i move just the fretboard (the lofted surface i baked) up so that it is centered on the x-axis then the spaces from string edge to fretboard edges works out. In this image i have left the strings in place and just moved the fretboard surface:"
