Research & Special orders

The virtually endless flexibility of 3D printing can be used as a very powerful tool for musical research and for the development of new instruments: 

In other words, many of the tools music researchers have been dreaming for centuries of having are now available.

A good example of this new kind of research is the Willisau Knochenflöte Project.

A different good example of the possibilities is this consort of slide pipes.

Personalised tools can also be produced, such as reed shapers.

Even personalised instruments can also be produced, such as this special cornetto.

Finally, an example of tools which can be 3D-printed is this caliper set.
