Details & Technical specifications


Possibilities of this technology:

This technology provides with a system to make very precise instruments for a very affordable price. This can be used either for study, analysis, prototype development as well as proper playable instruments. Computer analysis of the 3D models also opens a new world of possibilities for the understanding of these instruments.


Precision:

This technology is extremely precise. If you have tried one of our instruments and order one like it you won‘t receive just a similar one but arguably the same one for any practical purpose. This is the essence and the wonder of 3D printing.


Material details:

These instruments are made with a laser-sintered nylon polymer which density (0,93 g/cm3) is almost the same of boxwood (0,95 - 1,2 g/cm3). The finished material is strong, flexible, washable and heat resistant.


Weight:

As the density of the polymer is very similar to boxwood the resulting instrument‘s weight is very similar to most traditionally made cornetti. Here is a comparison table of the weight of some instruments:

  • 466 wooden cornetto by Serge Delmas: 150 g.
  • 466 wooden cornetto by Roland Wilson: 149 g.
  • 466 3D printed cornetto black: 149 g.
  • 466 3D printed cornetto white: 141 g.


Varnish:

After polishing all instruments are varnished with a layer of mate transparent heavy-wear allergy-safe acrylic. This improves the instruments‘ grip and touch feel and makes them dirt-repellent as well as fully washable.


Material Technical Details:

  • Density: 0,93 g/cm3.
  • Average grain: 56 μm
  • Precision: 0,15 mm. guaranteed at any point of the model.
  • Heat resistance: material remains unaltered up to 80ºC.
  • This material is not recyclable.
