I looked up what kind of 3d models to print of instruments and gear already exists and I was astonished at some of the products that exist out there. I don’t have much experience with building or repairing instruments but I thought I could be a an interesting little project to see what I could produce on my printer.
So I took a look around and there seem to exist models for following instruments:
- A bunch of different whistles
- Saxophone - no public 3d model
- (Les Paul) Ukulele
- Fully printable Guitar (ca. 3/4 scale)
- electric guitar bodys (neck, pickup, plate and electronics not printed)
I think I will try out the fully printable guitar or the ocarina first. Depending on how long a testrun would take for the guitar. Printing stuff is fun, but it takes hours upon hours and then there still may be something wrong with the result. It is only for the patient.
