6 Hole Flute
by tbuser, published
While working with Cymon (who doesn't have a MakerBot) and NYCDESIGNER to try and get Cymon's Recorder design to work thingiverse.com/thing:11796 I decided I needed a little more SCIENCE! So I wrote a parametric OpenSCAD script based on the Whistle/Flute from ggwhistles.com/howto/ that allows you to experiment with different hole placement, size, window and lip angles, etc. This flute is much simpler then a recorder (and not nearly as pretty as Cymon's) but it is able to play 6 notes quite clearly and loudly. Now if only I knew how to play the flute...
This is still a work in progress because I think I can get the mouthpiece/lip to print a little easier. It's kind of fiddly to get it just right.

Just be careful if you redesign your flute to be tapered towards the end like Picard's. If you do that, the finger hole placement will need to be tweaked.
I'll give it another shot today. What are you using to visualize the GCode like that? Is that somewhere in Skeinforge?

Alternatively, you can print top1 and glue it to middle and bottom. Then you have a body and can experiment with top2 and mouthpiece options. Use the joint_ring to temporarily join top1 and top2 together while you experiment.
Don't print assembly_solid unless you have a giant printer with support. :)
