Fretboard design generator

Generating fretboard layouts is tedious at best. Whilst there are lots of existing fret spacing calculators out there, they still require you enter the measurements into your design tool by hand, and I wanted to automate that process. Hence the existence of this: a simple webpage where you enter the details of the fretboard you want and it’ll generate either an SVG or DXF file for you to import into either your design/CAD software or CAM workflow. You can find the source code here.
