3D Printed Stradivarius Violin

Many useful items can be made via 3D printing but a violin? Check out this video of a 3D printed violin!

The design of this violin is based on an original Stradivarius violin, named “Sunrise”, made in 1677 by Antonio Stradivari in Cremona, Italy. The 3D printed violin was printed in parts with wood filament via a Reprap FDM 3D printer made specifically for this purpose. More than 40 parts were assembled in the traditional violin luthier way, called “Systema Cremonese”.┬áPrinting and assembly of this violin took around 9 months to complete.

Music technology teacher and researcher, Harris Matzaridis, created the copy during a research project lasting for over 2 years. Read more…
