I am open to requests to design specific musical instruments. Any ideas/suggestions are very welcome.

I would really like to make a theremin!

A pianica would be fun; making the reeds would be tedious.
How about an accordion.

Let's make a melodica.

How about a 3d printed mouthpiece for a trumpet?

Hey, thanks for pointing that out!

I think a Kalimba would be doable!

That's a good idea. I am very busy but will see what I can do

Snare drum for sure. There's a lack of percussion!

Possibly a guitar would be awesome!

Acoustic, Classical or Electric?

There are already four 3D printable electric guitar models (mostly bodies) on Thingiverse:

One pseudo "classical":

And no steel stringed acoustics. Steel stringed acoustics might be too hard to 3D print for a few reasons (too large, too much string tension, etc.) A 3/4 scale might be doable, however.

Currently, I am finishing up designs/prototypes for an electric clavichord, mandolin, small zither, and a novel 4 stringed guitar/hurdy gurdy hybrid instrument.
