3D Printing Technique Yields Working Records

By Jason Fitzpatrick on December 27th, 2012

Evidence that 3D printing techniques are maturing in their capabilities: working 3D records. This interesting tutorial takes a look at how you can produce a serviceable LP with a 3D printer.

The results are highly experimental at this point and the sound is a bit muddy (at the current stage the project is only able to sample sound at about a third the audio quality of MP3) but the fact that 3D printers have evolved to even allow for the fine-detail printing necessary for record playback is amazing. Hit up the link below for more details about the project.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
