3D Printed Sax and Clarinet Reeds!
These are still to be tested, so if anyone gets a chance, post it in the comments. I've printed them successfully @0.08mm layers on my replicator, with PLA (ABS not yet attempted, though warping will likely occur). I also suggest increasing the number of shells to 10 or more, this will help hold the tip together, only 0.25mm thick.
Update 23/2: The MK1 with a bit of material removal is providing a very large range (A2-Eb6 I think) on the baritone. Will determine the ideal model and upload soon. I've also uploaded a short demonstration of the sound (more of a sharp edgy sound, just showing the range).
Update 6/4: I've uploaded a few new ones, along with an updated version of the Baritone. Included are the Soprano, Alto & Tenor reeds for saxophone, and normal and bass Clarinet reeds. As before, these haven't been tested properly yet, but i've increased the thickness to a standard 0.5mm so that you can sand them down a bit. Prints seem to work best with PLA, ABS will lift up too much and make a rough surface. PLA is also easier to sand down if needed. If you need higher resolution STL's, let me know.
