3d Printed Violin Model

Jun 22, 2018 12:11 pm

Finished 3d printed violin.

Some minor printing problems here and there, and had a couple of problems gluing stuff together. But good enough for now!

I was very amused to hear a musical twang when I plucked the strings which are made of thread (button thread). This violin isn't meant to be played. In fact, originally, it wasn't event meant to be made into a physical object; I didn't think something I modeled years ago just for computer graphics could become an actual thing.

Feeling pretty happy. :)

Fantastic effort.

Now, you will have to try it with wood fill ;)
