The Atom 3D printed Drum Kit
The Atom 3D printed drum kit is a 5 piece drum kit on which all the drum shells have been 3D printed. The kit consists of 12″, 13″ and 16″ toms, a 22″ bass drum, and 14″ snare. The hardware is from a Sonor SmartForce drum kit.
The drum kit was printed, using Selective Laser Sintering, by 3D Systems in the USA, on an sPro 230 SLS system. The material being used for the keyboard is Duraform PA GF 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 drum kit body is 0.1mm thick).
The drum kit will be on display on the 3D Systems stand at Euromold, in Frankfurt, from December 3rd to 6th, on stand E68 in Hall 11.0. Come and see it as part of a complete 3D printed band!
