Hi all, I've been lurking here for a number of years and thought it's time I started a conversation. I had an idea while lying in bed recently which to my mind seemed very interesting. 3D printed drum shells. While I'm certainly no expert on this technology, with a little imagination the possibilities seem amazing. A quick search found a little information on this subject. http://3dprintedinstruments.wikidot.com/ and http://www.shapeways.com/ have some good info but no one seems to actually have created any yet, which is surprising considering the ease of manufacture and creative potential. Shells with 3D carved designs of just about anything you want like geometric patterns or fractals over the entire surface or designs from the natural world. Integrated/redesigned lugs etc. What are your thoughts?
