Guitar Technology Fabbed

By on December 13th, 2008 in blog


GooCart reports on a musical adventure involving his ’98 R8 honeyburst guitar and 3D printing. Evidently the pick guard did not fit, so he “scanned the ’53 GT guard into my 3d software and modified it for the R8, then I used our 3d printer for this cutting template”. The new part (pictured) will be used as a template for a router.

This is a great example of how 3D technology can be used in consumer situations. The only problem is, how many people would know how to do this? What services or software might be necessary to enable everyone to do this?

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
