Stradivarius 3D Printed replica

Wired UK got its hands on the Stradivarius 3D Printed replica made famous by The Economist

The violin was manufactured by EOS using Laser Sintering technology (except for strings, fine tuner and pegbox), one of the multiple “3D Printing” technologies. The material used is a polymer named EOS PEEK HP3

“The violin was a technology exercise,” EOS told Wired.co.uk. “We wanted to test what we can achieve with our technology, which…is ideally suited for complex structures. This is why we chose a complex musical instrument which normally is being made in a very traditional way and with a traditional material — wood.”
