Cant watch video. Set to private

hmm... seems the video is set private :(

Hey Todd, this is pretty awesome. If your the guy in the picture, we met at the 3D printing expo, you were wearing a chewbaca shirt. This is pretty awesome, should have been featured for today. Anyway, cool stuff!

Instructions

This was made in white PLA with 4 shells, 5% infill, and exterior support. I finished it with black paint and sandpaper. V2 has the improved mouthpiece. The file size is also a lot smaller.

Whew, I hope so! I nearly fell out of my chair trying, and it sounds like a sick moose! :)

I was able to check out a real shofar in person the other day, and modified the mouthpiece on this so that it more accurately matches a real one. This should make it much much easier to blow. Print out shofarV2.stl and give it a try!

version 2 is much much much better. I tried it out and it is very easy.

I tried printing this the other day with ABS but the exterior support started pulling the raft off of the platform. I currently have a 120 degree platform but do you think I should bump it to 130 or 140?

Mine came out OK at 110C on a Replicator. If I may offer suggestions: Recheck level, use fresh kapton, and a good acetone wipe.

Look out vuvuzelas

Wow, this is a big print. Does the STL fit at full scale on a Replicator? I am tempted to scale it down a little, but that might impact the sound. Have you tried it in ABS?

Yes it totally fits on the build plate of The Replicator and you can actually make it slightly bigger if you tilt it upwards some. It's a bit harder to blow than I think it should be, maybe the shape of the mouthpiece needs to be adjusted. Ive been using PLA almost exclusively for the last couple of months because it's way easier and more reliable. The pitch should drop as you increase the size, or so says science.
