I've always wanted to make my own version of an acoustic 3D-printed violin, an instrument that sounds authentic without the help of electronics.
This is a full-size, fully playable acoustic violin based on tracings of a Stradivarius. It is compatible with most violin fittings (strings, bridge, pegs, tailpiece etc) but some of these fittings are also 3D printable, with the included files. The prototypes were made on a Form 2 SLA printer. The parts should work with an SLS printer and maybe(!) an FDM printer with fine nozzle and support generation.
*Form 2 Users: All of the parts are contained within the .form files, you can disregard the .stl files. As for other printers, the .stl set is complete as well, and you can ignore the .form files.
I have included instructions on how to assemble the violin.
