Hey! I've been searching all over for a 12 hole ocarina and cant find one, do you think you could make one easily? I would but I suck at 3d drawing.

New body up and is working. Still working on he pitching with the finger holes. If you get a print and test out the finger holes let me know.

What layer height do you recommend? Supports or no?

Relaunch by end of week with working one

Hi again !
I made one today, looking nice but not working :) . Do you know if it's possible to make a chinese ocarina (xun) out of it ? Their shape is quite similar.

still working on side tracked by normal life stuff bah! The issue is the line up on the resin hole. Been testing a whistle design to get that right before I redo. I have 2 whistle working but yet to remake the body. Maybe I will get sometime later this week.

Hi !
Did you succeed to have a working version ? I'm really interested to try it out !

The new working voicing hole is loaded. I am working on the tuning and a few styles for the main body.

not sure if you came across http://www.greenverdugo.com/ocarina-making-tutorial/ocarina-making-15.htmlhttp://www.greenverdugo.com/oc... (and others to page 20) but it should be very helpful in getting this to play.

Also researching the helmholtz resonator (such as http://www.phys.unsw.edu.au/jw/Helmholtz.htmlhttp://www.phys.unsw.edu.au/jw... ) of which the ocarina is a prime example may help

The first link I should add up to my description. I used the adjusting the voice section a lot! That is a great resource. Thanks for the second one should be a good read. Hoping after I get the voice area better figured out that I will build a double ocarina that is more to scale that I can tune. Then I might go to brass instruments as I play the trumpet it might be fun to do some new or revive some old brass instruments.

Warning this does not play yet!! its in redesign as the   wind hole was a bit off. new one in a few week will work

Did you get a chance to work on this?
