Using only a MendelMax 3D printer, Andrew Murrell created an acoustic violin that is fully capable of being played and looks just like the real thing.

3D printing instruments can be a difficult task that requires professional-grade 3D printer equipment. However, this creation by Murrell is rather impressive and features a finished aesthetic that looks just like a classically made violin.

The acoustic violin was created using the above-mentioned 3D printer and ROBO3D Wood PLA filament to create the body of the instrument. Murrell utilized the files made available by Matt Hova to create the violin, which took about 30-hours of printing in order to accomplish. It marks one of the finest efforts in creating an instrument at-home, using hobby-grade equipment, that's comparable to other professional examples.
