We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Designed for my house mates as a Christmas present, this is a King's Plectrum (As so designated by the crown the plectrum is wearing!) Also attaches to a key ring.
Started life as a simple design for a 1.2 mm plectrum with a tapered base and top section (For smooth strumming). It is fairly flexible and actually pretty good for playing with.
After initial prints I started to scale by 30% to make it into the same size as a standard plectrum.
Successfully printed with Slic3r using the following settings:
Increase scale by 30%
0.5 mm Nozzle
0.2 mm Layer Height
4 Shells (4 Top, 4 Bottom)
You can add initials to the embossed section in the center using CAD Software. Ensure the lettering is at least 0.4 mm for a decent print.
Make sure to use a fine sand paper to finish, otherwise you may catch your strings when playing.
