Once again, we have another example of how 3D-printing is rapidly progressing.
This time, a company called 3D Varius has developed what is being deemed the world’s first 3D-printed electric violin.
Obviously, the violin, called Stradivarius and made from 3D-printed plastic, doesn’t sound exactly like a wood violin, but it still sounds pretty dang good.
Don’t believe me?
Just watch musician Laurent Bernadac bring Stradivarius to life in the video.
The neat part about the 3D-printed electric violin is the fact that it is extremely lightweight, yet strong enough to handle tuning and tension amongst the strings.
Right now, the violin is merely a prototype, but it does represent endless possibilities in regards to 3D-printed musical instruments down the road.
