Description

This thing was made with Tinkercad.

This is the result of my intuitive understanding of how whistles are put together. There are a number of parameters that may or may not make this work. So, while I wait for my Printrbot to arrive, I am hoping someone with either print this or a derivative and let me know how it works.

The things that I think affect a whistle's ability to make a sound: -size of aperture -angle of air flow (currently tangent to aperture) -angle of edge that "cuts" airflow from mouthpiece -volume of whistle (pitch)

When sliced with 0.4 mm layer height and 0.5 mm nozzle, the pea inside is attached both to the bottom and to the wall. This makes separating it more difficult than necessary, if at all possible.
