Photos of the Day: The world’s first 3D-printed saxophone
Olaf Diegel has created the world’s first 3D-printed saxophone. Instruments are particularly difficult to print because so much of the sound requires the perfect usage of air, not to mention the material can really influence the sound.
A saxophone is an incredibly complex compilation of materials and design. This prototype includes 41 components, plus the springs for all the keys, which were added by hand along with any screws.
