3D model description

A playable shakuhachi (japanese end-blown bamboo-flute) with lowest tone in C.

3D printing settings

I uploaded one stl file of the entire flute, one file in which I cut the flute into 5 pieces and files of the individual pieces for separate printing. There is a joint between piece 2 and 3. It may require some polishing before it fits. To connect piece 1 and 2 as well as piece 3, 4 and 5, polish the end faces somewhat and use epoxy to glue them together. The mouthpiece may also require some gentle sharpening with polishing paper. It is modeled according to an original shakuhachi, it is highly playable and sounds great. I printed it in PLA with raft but no supports.

Exactement pareil que le commentaire précedent !
Assemblé mais aucun son n'en sort !
Je pense qu'il est beaucoup trop grand, problème de taille, échelle mauvaise !

I printed one out and assembled it. I can't get it to make any sound for the life of me.
