Pauline – the first-ever electric violin printed on the 3D-printer
Producers of the most different goods start to be nervous frankly when speech comes about the 3D-press, after all more and more people get to itself 3D-printers and print on them the most different subjects, including furniture and a home decoration, sculptures, an ornament and even I go. The staff of the company 3D Varius, for example, prints musical instruments. The first electric violin printed with them received the romantic name Pauline.
In spite of the fact that founders of Pauline argue that their product is the first-ever electric violin printed on the 3D-printer, this statement can be challenged. In April of this year the MONAD Studio company also created a violin, however, with only two strings. And it was similar not to a musical instrument, and on the fantastic weapon from Japanese role-playing games. You only look at this photo.
As to Pauline is a much more traditional musical instrument in respect of the size and quantity of strings unless the case of a violin is a little intricate and deprived of the habitual wooden case. You can hear, what sound can be taken from this surprising gadget thanks to video, made with the assistance of professional musician Lauren Bernada. It should be noted that he not only perfectly plays musical instruments, but also skillfully uses in the performances various samplers and synthesizers.
