This is a great idea! I am going to try something similar with my class. Thanks for inspiration

I printed the pan flute / pipes. I had to trim them a little with a pocket knife but they played some sound for me. Some of the holes more than others depending on how strong of a puff you give them. Good for my 3 year old though, he liked it.

Does it actually work???

Instruments need a solid and smooth surface where the air blows in. I don't know how it can be achieved with filament and a 3dprinting.

You can use a prim and fill paint. There will be sanding. This is the one I use: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006ZLQ4HQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I printed the pan pipes, but they didn't produce any sound like they should. I had a flute player try, just in case I wasn't playing them right. Not sure where the modification needs to happen.

Do the Panpipes need supports?
