Ultimaker-printed Bagpipes - video!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker-printed Bagpipes - video!

Here's a video of my recently printed bagpipes :)

 

Just goes to show what these printers can do!

For good tone, post-production (basically, polishing all the inside bore surfaces) is important. After that, a quick shine-up on the outside with very fine (wet) sandpaper and 0000 steel wool, and even pipers don't believe me at first when I tell them these are 3D printed :):):)

They're lightweight, comfortable, and have a good response. I'm going to play them to bring in the bells this Hogmanay (New Years Eve) :)

I've grown up with bagpipes (check my location!), and detest them with a passion. However I have to admit that's pretty impressive.

What parts were printed? All the hard bits? I would not have said that :)

Man I love the sound of bagpipes. I'm surprised you could print them and have them sound so good. Kudos!
