I think it was Michelangelo who said he chipped away all the marble in order to set the angel free.Thanks. I learned new words for a concept.
My creative outlets tend to produce and intangible product - software that solves a problem, for example - so "real world" creativity sometimes mystifies me. Mrs. Fro. is a potter so I have some sense of visualizing something and building and forming to realize that vision. But it blew my mind, so to speak, when I first heard a sculptor talk about looking at a slab of marble and visualizing what had to be removed to "release" the vision inside.
Back at NAMM 2013 I visited the booth of ODD Guitars, who printed really nice looking guitars.One of my goals with the 3D printer is to print a functioning playable guitar.
A couple of reasons. First (and most important), I didn't design the original model, and that's how it came. I do have models with the original '60s routes which would have used even more filament, but I like this one because of the options it gives.That IS very cool!
Curious how come you didn't go with the swimming pool route for the pickup cavity? Would've saved you a bit of plastic/resin/whatever you call it...
