How To Print Custom Guitars Off Of Your Computer

Check out this video of the Zoybar TOR – a custom guitar that was ‘printed’ from a computer, using 3D modeling technology.

Here’s how to print your own custom guitar:

  • Design an awesome 3D guitar using Blender, an open source 3D modeling application, or customize a 3D model that you find on the Internet
  • Print it at an online 3D printing service, like Shapeways
  • Put it together and rock

Of course, it would probably help a lot if you know something about 3D modeling software and the capabilities of 3D printers.

The materials for the Tor cost about $175.

At that price, it’s not too hard to imagine printing off your own custom 3D guitar, or sharing models of 3D guitars over the Internet.

Check out the Tor photo and demo and let us know what you think of the possibility that you might ‘print’ your next guitar off of your computer.
