After my Parametric Customizable Brass-intrument Mouthpiece, I'm looking if I can actually print a Trumpet. This is the first step: Make a pipe of the right shape. Feel free to play around if you get how it works.


physics background....

Great idea! I was thinking about spiralling a small whistle horn so that it all fits into a 6" tall cyclinder, but where to put the holes?

Hmmm a whistle horn wasn't exactly the fine musical instrument I had in mind. :) And I haven't come to the part yet where we can make bends into the pipe.
