The Virtual Fret Dress

Once the instrument has been scanned, we have enough data to be able to simulate the results of further work on the fingerboard or frets.

This is known as the "Virtual Fret Dress".

The Virtual Fret Dress (VFD) is the core function of the Plek Pro program.

This software tool makes it possible to set the amount of fret height to be cut as well as adjusting the radius (making it possible to obtain a compound radius within the frets) as well as the amount of "fall-off" on the uppper frets.

Initially, this all happens virtually, meaning that the VFD merely simulates the result of cutting without actually processing the frets.

Frets that are too high or too low can be easily recognized and targeted for virtual correction. This means that when the instrument is actually processed, the amount of fret material to be cut is kept to a minimum.
