The assembly can be hand-assembled from printed parts, assembled-in-place on the printer, or both.

You may create your own model, or modify an existing one, this contest is judged on design quality, aesthetic appeal, printability, and functionality.

Any submission of printed instruments may be post processed, dyed, painted, filled and sanded, powder coated, whatever. But if you do this, you must have before pictures for any printed parts.

All submissions must include your instrument in STL format, a render in JPEG format, a txt/doc file with a short description of your object. Bonus round: send images or video of the 3D printed musical instrument. (Videos to get a better look are encouraged.) Please help spread the word about this sub-reddit and the sponsor by mentioning "/r/3dprinting" and "LulzBot" in the picture/video description.

Can any strings/head/etc be added after printing? Size limit?


Yes, it should be ok according to the moderator's response to a similar question r/3Dprinting:

Does the sound have to be produced from the printed pieces themselves? Or can other hardware be used? Such as guitar string or electronics
