In Sweden, a Malmo Academy of Music professor has designed a range of fully customizable, 3D-printable instruments. Apparently, none of the virtual instruments on offer should take longer than 12 hours to materialize in real-life form.
The instruments can be used right away, and each aspect can be modified by users in the sketch stages. Olaf Diegel, the project’s originator, is currently looking for a musical virtuoso to endorse the new innovation, since the very idea of 3D-printed instruments may trigger skepticism as much as surprise.
