Spider 3D Printed Guitar

The Spider 3D printed guitar: A guitar with a spiderweb motif and spiders on the inside. The bodies are printed, using Selective Laser Sintering, by 3D Systems, on an sPro 230 SLS system. The material being used for these guitars is Duraform PA which is a very strong form of Nylon. The resolution for the prints was 0.1mm (which means that each layer that makes up the guitar body is 0.1mm thick). The guitars feature a wooden inner core (choices of Mahogany or Maple, etc.) that links the neck to the bridge, which allows us to customize the sustain and tone of the instrument to suit the musician, and a number of options for hardware, etc.
