First trial of plated trumpet. Will try to improve the finish quality for the new version.
holy crap that looks awesome, have you been able to play it in the meanwhile?
Holy Moly! That's one of the best finishes I've ever seen! What did you do? What did you do?!
Thank you~ We electroplate the prints and polish it :-)
how do you plate it ?
this is nice :)
I just realized a possible reason why this, and other printed instruments don't work that well: If the valves don't go down that well, in addition to sanding valve grease could be applied to make it easier to play, and also reduce air leaks within the valve chambers.
Does it work? It looks great.
It does not work well. The creator just shared a revised model to me and we will test it soon.
What if you sanded it down really well, and used the lost PLA method to cast it?
Well that's amazing..
