3D Printed Guitar
Michael Tyson, of Adelaide, has created an elegant French Suits themed guitar on his UP BOX. Using the large build area he was able to construct the body of the beast in 4 lightweight sections that he then joined together. A notable achievement, as one big issue facing guitarists is the weight of their instrument. Keeping the inside of the body hollow, allows for longer jam sessions.
Fleet of UP Plus 2’s create a soft table
Joshua Stellini, of the University of Melbourne, has created an eye catching flexible table. Combining a wooden frame and 3D printed cubes, his vision came to life. Each of the 167 cubes were created on a number of UP Plus 2, 3D printers. The estimated total print time was approximately 200 hours across all of the machines he used in the project.
Iron Man prototype – One step ahead of the game
