Top 5 Music Day Videos: 3D Printed Instruments

On June 21, 2020 by Sandra S released

As you probably already know, additive manufacturing is used in numerous industries: whether in the automotive industry, the medical field or aerospace and aerospace. Today we want to focus on an area that is comparatively rarely discussed: 3D printing and instruments. We chose this theme to match Music Day, which is being celebrated today in many countries around the world, including Germany. Have a nice Sunday and enjoy watching the videos!


Top 1: 3D printed violin

In our first video, Michael Crockett takes you into the world of 3D printed instruments and shows how beautiful they can sound. He printed colorful violins using the HP MJF 580 and Nylon. In addition to excerpts from the manufacturing process, you can also see how the 3D-printed instrument can sound when playing music.

Top 2: The way to the indestructible guitar

In this video, a group of developers have set themselves no less than a goal of creating an indestructible guitar to be tested by well-known guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen. They use 3D printing for this. Although the goal is to obtain an indestructible instrument, the sound quality should not suffer as a result. Titanium was used for the print to allow for a light weight in addition to durability. Watch the video and see if the guitar passes the test.

Top 3: Repair piano using 3D printing

But what if the instrument is already damaged? The following video addresses this problem and shows how 3D printing can contribute to sustainability. The keys of the said instrument were recreated by the user using the CAD software Fusion 360 and then printed. He used PLA for this. You’ll be privy to the entire process from creating the design to attaching the buttons. Perhaps the video will inspire you to repair something that initially seems impossible or very expensive to repair.

Top 4: Personalized instruments: Is this what the guitars of the future will look like?

You’ve probably seen a lot of guitars that are colored or have stickers added to them, making the instrument a trademark. But now personalization is to be taken to a new level: Thanks to 3D printing, electric guitars are to be provided with unique designs. In the video you only see a fraction of the possible designs. Here, too, the 3-print once again proves its cost-effectiveness. The 3D-printed instrument should be priced like a mass-produced product. Find out more in the video:

Top 5: Anycubic i3 Mega as an instrument?

The last video should be viewed with some humor. The operator of the “Make Anything” channel asked himself whether it was possible to make his Anycubic i3 dance and sing. You can see the result in the video! For those who don’t yet know what you can do this Sunday during Corona times: In the video description you will find the G code that turns your printer into an instrument. After watching the video, please let us know what you think of the idea and whether the video made you smile.
