Last week he was giving short performances at his company’s booth at CES. Bernadec, an engineer and musician, said his violin mimics the weight and feel of a classic Strad, which was scanned to provide the basis for the plastic version.
One advantage of a printed violin is it the consistency that comes from having a body made from a single piece of material. In this case, plastic.
The violins have been selling in Europe since 3DVarius completed a Kickstarter funding campaign last summer. The price is bit $8,000.
You can get more information about the printing process, see videos of the violin in action, and place an order on the 3DVarius website.
