I have no idea how to support the valve. Both Cura and Meshmixer support look like monstrosities.

Edit: I went with Meshmixer supports. Came out great. Kazoo works as advertised.

does this need supports? and instead of using wax paper, would saran rap work? thanks.

Could I print these and sell them on Etsy, thanks!

What is the recommended position to print them?

For best results, print as shown in the screenshot images (the blue models)

Thank you, it works perfectly! (with cigarette paper)

Interesting kazoo and happy new year, would it work with plastig bag?

"Do we need some more kazoo" -- Narrator from film of the year 1986 Kazoo Kid

sans être méchant un kazoo en plastique sert a rien on peux pas sortir de son réel comme un vrai si il y a des parties en métal c'est pas pour rien ceci est valable pour tout instrument a vent de de type

So, it doesn't work. When I blow through it it just sounds like I'm blowing through a tube. There's no kazoo sound at all. I have the valve stuck into the body, then a piece of wax paper on top of it, then the cap on that, and it's all snapped snugly together. What am I doing wrong?

you hum not blow

Hey CarterGoff

This is a common misconception with the kazoo! Kazoos won't work by blowing into them - you'll actually have to hum into it (the larger end is the side you hum into)

Check out this quick video which explains; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfJkAazFjLY

I just printed this and I tried humming and basically everying and it sounds no different than just humming without it. Help? I wanna sound like kazoo kid not an idiot vibrating a piece of plastic that doesnt work.

Make sure that the wax paper is taught and forms a seal when the cap is on - if it is loose or has gaps around the edges it won't work properly.

If the wax paper is cut too small it could shift a little when you place the cap on, which would prevent a seal from being formed. Make sure the wax paper you start with is large enough and is taught when the kazoo cap is assembled and it should work properly. Hope this helps!

I used foil, not wax paper, is it legal?

Are there holes in the foil? Also, I would not want to breathe in PLA fumes as it melts.

The valve needs to be printed with a brim.

Darn, I just bought one... Next one will be printed :-) Thanks for the model.
