3D Printed Electric Guitar
After many hours of CAD design, numerous failed prints, trial and error followed by more trial and error, and a total of 70 hours of total print time, I am very pleased with my first 3D printed guitar! The inspiration came after stumbling across a company called ODD Guitars founded by creative designer Olaf Diegel. With limited resources I set out to create a functioning and aesthetically pleasing electric guitar with a Les Paul style. This project helped me to enhance my CAD skills and helped me to learn how to integrate a 3D printed design with hardware and electronics. The journey I went on while creating this guitar was fantastic, and I was happy to be able to bring together two of my passions, 3D printing and music.
Below I have posted photos of the final product, I show some screenshots of the CAD model, and have a product list of all the materials I used (in case you decide you would like to make your own). The body of the guitar was printed using my Monoprice Maker Ultimate 3D Printer. I hope you enjoy, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
