Thingiverse user Ian Hanna designed and 3d printed a fully functional guitar and uploaded it on thingiverse. In his youtube video, he demonstrates how it looks, functions and sounds. It costs about $30 in material and the pieces print without any support material. It looks rather stylish and sounds pretty great!
The whole thing is printed. You don’t need anything else but some super glue to assemble the guitar. Add some strings and standard guitar tuning machines and you’re done! It is about 3/4 scale and is very playable.
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! 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!
