Named after its Soviet creator Léon Theremin––whose other inventions include the legendary Cold War listening device known as The Thing––Theremins are perhaps the only musical instruments that do not require a musician's physical touch in order to...
Tone Deaf Making music from 3D-printed instruments CNET Olaf Diegel, a design engineer and professor of mechatronics at Massey University in Auckland, New Zealand, 3D prints gorgeously intricate electric guitars.
ODD is the brainchild of Olaf Diegel, and the last time Gizmag caught up with the Kiwi Professor of Mechtronics he had just unveiled a pair of beautifully intricate 3D-printed guitar bodies attached to an all wood neck, and sporting some high end hardware. He's since wrapped more of his eye-popping designs over mahogany or maple inner cores and gone into production, offering personalizable and customizable electric guitars and bass models costing from US$3,000 each.
Now he's put a keyboard in a 3D-printed housing, and replaced the wood shells on the toms, kick and snare of a Sonor drum kit with 3D-printed nylon. The whole ensemble will be on display at EuroMold next month, where a band will take to the stage to play some live sets using the instruments.
I've had to introduce the band many times over the years, but the instruments have never upstaged the players before ... until now. Though the Ladybug keys and Atom Drums will definitely be heading to Frankfurt, Diegel has not made it clear at this point which electric and bass guitars will be going along, so I've chosen to outline a couple of his newer creations.
The 3D-printed components used in all of the instruments were produced by 3D Systems in the US. The company used an sPro 230 Selective Laser Sintering system at 0.1 mm resolution, which is much higher than your average desktop 3D printer (though consumer-level technology is improving all the time), hence the smoother finish and finer detail.
