Musikmesse 2017: World's first 3D printed electric concert violin to be showcased

Its body is printed as a single piece, and its dimensions can be personalised and adapted to any morphology.

French engineer and violinist Laurent Bernadac will be showcasing the 3Dvarius at this year’s Musikmesse.

Its maker claims that this musical instrument is the world’s first high-end electric violin created by 3D-printing technology and based on a real Stradivarius model.

“The 3Dvarius is the only electric violin with a body in one single piece. This particularity ensures a perfect accuracy of the audio spectrum and a total respect of the musician’s emotion,” said Bernadac.

The 3Dvarius was designed to facilitate the transition for all violinists from a classical violin to a model like this one. Its dimensions can be personalised and adapted to any morphology.

Its body is printed as a single piece, thus departing from traditional musical instrument production, giving it a very unique property: it allows for smooth, optimal sound-wave flow throughout the instrument, offering the violinist greater sound control.

Its weight distribution is optimised in order to facilitate the musician’s movements.

The 3Dvarius will be on show during Musikmesse in Hall 8, booth A05, where there will be numerous musical demonstrations.

Bernadac will also be performing at the Acoustic Stage on Thursday April 6th at 1pm.
