3D Printed Saxophone Made with Laser and All that Jazz

Last year, 3D Systems CEO Avi Reichental dared 3D printed guitar maker Olaf Diegel to make a 3D printed saxophone. Challenge accepted. Olaf recently showed off one of his prototypes on YouTube, an alto saxophone mostly made of nylon, which he printed using selective laser sintering (SLS).

Watch Olaf play a couple of tunes on his sax:

Olaf knows that his prototype is not the first plastic saxophone, but he took on the project partly because he wants to remind us that “3D printing can be used for applications beyond trinkets, phone cases, and jewelry.” Who knows, someday we could have a 3D printed sax that will be more affordable and easier to repair than its brass counterparts.
