RhinoCAM® at Murchison Made Guitars
Murchison Made Guitars in New Prague, Minnesota uses RhinoCAM® to assist in the product of The Murchison, a 4th generation acoustic guitar design.
Figure 1 – Bridge Design Toolpaths for The Murchison (by Murchison Made Guitars)
In the bridge design (shown in Figure 1 above), holes for positioning pins are first drilled into the bottom using a 2½ axis Deep Drill operation. In the same setup, a 25 foot radius is machined over the holes using a 3 axis Parallel Finishing operation. The part is then manually turned over and positioned on a fixture where the top also receives the same 25 foot radius. The final product is shown in Figure 2.

“My two CNC machines are the heartbeat of my shop! The ability to draw something in Rhino and quickly turn it into a toolpath as effectively and as simply as possible, to me, is priceless!” – Tanner Murchison of Murchison Made Guitars
