Default Guitar/inlay design program?

I’m looking for some kind of program or simulator(?) to help me with making “mock-ups” of various inlay combinations (for fretboards, pegheads, etc.).

Does anyone know of something like this? Or an easier way to go about doing this (besides photoshop)? Thanks!

You can probably use a free program like Inkscape... or even SketchUp if you wanted to design in 3D

Thanks, I’ll check those out. What I’m looking to do is try out different inlay layouts/ configurations on a “blank” fretboard and headstock. So a “flat” image will work fine.

For my Cnc work, I purchased vetric, outstanding program for doing inlay work, if your budget can afford it then upgrade to aspire.
