Fixing a Ethnomusicological 3D Print


While not the most obvious choice for an example in a 3D Printing tutorial, Dolf Veenvliet does a great job at fixing a 3D file of a musical instrument, and get it ready for 3D printing.

I was asked by Andrew Clay McGraw Ph.D. to help him fix a 3D file. In this video I use Blender 3D to make a fully printable, full colour version of the model he generated in his studies.

This video can be found on the 'Blender for 3D Printing' DVD by the Blender Foundation.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

  1. Hi everyone (and thanks Bart)... just to clarify... this video is not on the Blender for 3D Printing DVD... it was made last week specifically for release youtube. But it is very much in the same style as those on the DVD... so if you enjoy one, you'll probably like the other too.
