Ultimaker making music

Recommended Posts

Any additional details?


How did you produce those gcodes?

I used a script that is freely available on the internet, just google it. It was originally made for makerbot, but you can use the same script for ultimakers too.


How did you get around acceleration screwing up the sounds?

I didnt. The Zelda theme is not mine, only the Nyan cat. I also got one with "flight of the bumble bee", and it is quite slow in the beginning before speeding up like crazy and making it sound perfectly. Also found out that Portal music also works fine on an ultimaker (if you want to know which one, check the promo video of the new ulticontroller :)



Any chance you'll release that script? How did you establish a relationship between pitch and feed rate?

Just check the script. The pitch is related to the speed of the stepper motors. The faster the motors go, the higher the pitch. Then its only controlling the time by controlling the length.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
