The World’s First 3-D Printed Violin Sounds Pretty Groovy


For whatever reason, violins are often at the forefront of futuristic design. But no matter how crazy a violin looks, the only thing that really matters is how it sounds. So while the 3Dvarius, the world’s first 3-D printed electric violin, probably isn’t as good as the Stradivarius after which it is named, the fact that something printed from a CAD file could come anywhere close to mimicking its namesake is notable.

Designed with the help of violinist and music artist Laurent Bernadac, the 3Dvarius is a fully playable electric violin designed to emulate the acoustic qualities of the Stradivarius. It doesn’t look much like one, though: without its strings, the 3Dvarius looks more like some sort of translucent, deep-sea creature. But tucked under a trained violinist’s chin, it sounds pretty good, even if it’s more electro jazz funk than classical.
