Steampunk 3D printed Guitar

The Steampunk 3D printed guitar: A tribute to one of my all-time favorite guitars, the Telecaster. This guitar features a 3D printed body with moving gears and piston. The entire body, including all its moving components is printed as a single component, with no further assembly required. The Steampunk paint job was done by New Zealand airbrush artist Ron van Dam.

The body was printed using selective laser sintering (SLS) by 3D Systems, in the USA, on an sPro 230 SLS machine out of Duraform (nylon) material.

The guitar has the following specifications:
