A close copy of my wife's violin bridge. Can be used in an emergency. You could be a hero and life saver with this one!


The base will have to be shaped to fit the top of your violin. Print this at 10% fill and it will be 1g heavier than a wooden one.

Use a fine file very lightly to create string guides. Use an old bridge as a reference. These guides don't have to be very deep.

The bass side is higher than the treble side. When installed, the flat side (build platform side) faces the tailpiece and the contoured side toward the fingerboard.

I made six or seven out of PLA on my Prusa i3. Excellent sound quality and has not warped within the last 2 months. Infill was 20% and used Kisslicer for slicing. I am replacing all my violin bridges with these. Only problem is if the finger-board has gone down a little, it would be necessary to print a lower one - sanding down the existing one is quite awkward with 20% infill. An openscad source file would be good.

Have you actually tested this? I highly doubt this will work. The stresses are quite large. Additionally the bridge is important for the sound quality.I think different infill densities might have better/worse sound qualities

If tested please post a video ;)
