First of all great thanks to the project F-F-Fiddle (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:219040) for idea of the violin printing.
But after some time I decided to draw my own electric violin which will be more look like classic violin and also will use some classic violin parts.
Violin was printed on Prusa i3 printer from PLA plastic. All violin parts are constructed with sizes suitable for printer bed 200 x 200 mm. Sizes of violin are close to classic violin 4/4. Strings, bridge, shoulder rest, chinrest are classic violin parts. Sound pickup with preamp were bought on ebay (you can find it by search words "electric violin pickup"). Pegs of violine were borrowed from guitar parts.
Here is shot video about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aOdIlK4IfM
Assembly of violin
Printed parts - 5pcs
bridge - 1pcs
sound pickup - 1pcs
electronic preamp - 1pcs
guitar pegs - 4pcs
metal rod M8x370 - 1pcs
m4x25 - 9pcs
m4x50 - 1pcs
m4x40 - 2pcs
m3x8 - 4pcs (for pegs)
m2x10 - 4pcs (for electronic preamp)
m4 - 12pcs
m3 long nut - 4pcs for hot installation in holes (for pegs screws)
m2x10 - screws for electronic preamp I melt it directly in plastic
Plastic parts I print from PLA with Prusa I3 printer. I'm using slicer Slic3r with fill density 10% but probably with 20-30% sound will be better.
