There’s no shortage of amazing stuff created using 3D printing technology. Design objects, cool gadgets, medical tools, you name it. But I bet you have never seen something like this…
The 3Dvarius is the new electric violin created by 3D printing technology and based on the model of a real Stradivarius violin.
Laurent Bernadac – a violinist and engineer – has introduced the 3Dvarius – a new electric violin design, based on a model of a real Stradivarius violin and created by 3D printing technology.
“Its body is printed as a single piece, thus departing from traditional musical instrument production, giving it a unique property: it allows for smooth, optimal sound-wave flow throughout the instrument, offering the violinist greater sound control.”
The 3Dvarius was born digitally in 2012, in Laurent Bernadac’s mind, the violinist and engineer who conceived it on his computer. He wanted to create an electric violin which could fulfill all the needs of a classical musician.
