Please Help in modeling Electric Guitar body

Posted: January 26, 2011
Hi, I know the basics of modeling but I'm having trouble making an electric guitar body smooth around the edges.

I've tried diffrent approaches with no luck. Please someone help me! I'm using 3ds MAX 9.

Hello ngin3d,
You have to manually correct all the overlapping faces - it's a part of modeling complex 3d objects. You get the rough shape with a method then you use editable poly to correct all the artifacts that appear and to teak your shape.

The yellow model from the image bellow is a pretty good start imho:
