This is a remix of the awesome Maya Skull design

Adapted for my custom designed Death Whistle Resonator. Its designed to be very strong, easy to print and very loud.

NOTE: UK ebay seller 3ddelight and srevael are selling my whistle design without my permission they have no respect for the designer and no respect for creative commons or have any ethics. I created the whistle for people to print for free, please do not support these sellers that are making money from the work of others. :(

Worn for ceremonies and taken into battle to intimidate enemies by recreating their death screams as a sign of their impending death. Read more about Death Whistles here

Looks like it's not working if you print it with a 0,8 mm nozzle and 0,6 mm layer height. Gotta try again.

Hello, I'm a newbie to 3D printing and this printed beautifully on my printer. It's probably my best looking print to date. Do you mind sharing your printer settings? Thanks

There are many settings
But this is my s3d profile

Thankyou i have reported them and asked them to take it down.

I tried too but the comment i got off the seller was "lol im just providing a printing service to those who cant print this at home" this is naughty to say the least.

Unfortunately some people will sell their honour integrity and morals for a small amount of money

the seller has taken the attrubution off the listing and just says original artist gary yelland. keep us posted how you get on. scum like this shouldnt get away with this.

Its now at the point where creative commons has no teeth anymore.

brilliant work, positively markabe! ~<3 i'm amazed just how variable, dynamic and consistantly horrifiying the sound spectrum of "noieses you dont want to hear at night" is. from faint and distant growls, cries and animal noises, to somebody being torn apart next to ones ear. ffs, you can get it to scream "help HEEEEELP! no OH GOD! NOOOoooooo.... aghrrrrrAYYIIIIIIIiiii" convincingly. wicked!
the normal reaction to a demonstration is utter horror, often followed by morbid curiosity. i think the noise triggers primordial instincts. even when i know i am the one playing it, it gives me chills.

Its a really weird thing even after designing it i still cant really believe that such a dark and primeval noise comes out, people are truly shocked by it.

Awesome idea. Printed perfectly and it's incredibly loud.

I wonder if there's a way to scale or remake it to get a deeper/lower screaming sound.

Ok, what can I say but WOW! My neighbors dog won't stop barking after hearing this. Very cool. I will post my pic later, but for now, this is awesome. Thanks for making this.

I am so happy to have found this. I just finished printing one and blew through it loudly without warning my wife..... she freaked!!!!
Thank you!!!!!

brilliant :)

Awesome whistle! But also awesome startup script, can you please share your start gcode script for your cr-10 please? Maybe email me the script if you could

This was really easy and quick to print. I had to clean out the inside ball with a dental pick as it had some strings. It takes a little practice to get it to sound right and you can adjust it with your palm underneath. I got some really nice screams out of it though. Thank you!

I had problems with Cura with the "original" most popular file, this much more cool and works! Thanks a lot for sharing, nice work!

i scaled it up 150%. printed in PETG with 0.1 layer height and it doesn't work ;C
looks cool on the shelf at least

That's Good to know I designed each cavity to resonate at a particular frequency and to also provide harmonics. So change the size would effect that for sure.

i managed to blow into it with all strenght and felt it vibrating a bit, so maybe with an air compressor it'd work. oh well, gonna print it at the default size later. That's a cool design btw. It's a nicest looking thing i printed so far ;)

Cool, maybe a car air pump :)

Do you happen to have the original resonating chamber you made before putting it into the skull?

Yes it's a mathematical model but it not something I will be sharin as it took many hours and prototypes to get right.

Any idea what might happen to the sound if I increase the build size?

Great Model Tacblades, works brilliantly and the sounds that come out of it they are phenomenal. I don't think my wife and kids are a fan but I love it!

Great really glad you like it, makes a sound like nothing else.

Printed one out, works like a dream (nightmare, really)!

Scares the crap out of people, and very loud!

Wow! I printed one and compared to my clay custom made whistle and I could barely tell the difference. It's truly amazing getting this ancient sound to come out of a 3D printed one.

Oh wow thats awesome :)

This thing works amazingly. I've been scaring the living crap out of people with it.

how do you make it shriek

You have the skull facing you, with the slots facing away from you and blow into the hole hard, you adjust the angle as it can reproduce wind sound for their worship to the god of wind soft blow, to screams hard blow, there is a sweet spot you have to find to get the loudest screams.

This thing makes a very unpleasant sound in a good way lol. Sure disturbed our cats.

It's a very ancient sound :)

Very nice! Just got done printing one. A warning for anyone else though that is going to use your, "Creality CR10 gcode PLA direct print"... It primes from front to back instead of across the front of the bed. I have my front/left clip moved over to the side of the glass rather than the front. OOPS, that's where this downloadable gcode primes. That was a quick wake up call! :p

Good point thanks for that.
