Today on our weekly live 3D Hangouts, we will be sharing a short “Field Guide” to celebrate the many ways that desktop 3D printing has entered into the area of music today. Here’s a quick roundup of a few other #3DxMusic projects that caught our interest to whet your appetite!
3D printer hacker and engineer Philipp Tiefenbacher (wizard23), member of Metalab in Vienna who created MagicShifter and other products, sorted out this parametric tool for creating 3D printed music boxes.
This is a 100% printed customizable music box!
Only 3D printed parts are used in the design and it can be assembled and disassembled via printed snapping mechanisms.
The project originated when a friend of mine said that he’d only be interested in 3D printing once he can print a music box 😉
I’ll try to keep the .scad file on this page updated but to help me to manage the design and to make it easier for others to contribute: ParametrizedMusicBox Github Repository.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
