I am extremely happy to give you the news!
Our workshop counts now with a second Prusa 3D Printer machine. This time it is a filament machine, that allows us to print prototype pieces with more mechanical strength than with our other trusted Resine printer.
This is something we, of course, knew from the start. Where one printer shines, the other fails, and that is why we must have both.
Making use of our latest 3D printer, we continue our research on the Mäkela Flute. We have now printed a full set of mouthpieces, with careful increments of 0.25mm in the measurements, allowing musicians to study how this affects their playing.
The study, of course, continues not only with the heads but also with the whistle’s body.
Both printers were bought with the support of the Finnish Flute Academy.
