3D printing is becoming more and more popular lately. The ability to design your own product and print it seems like a futuristic idea. Imagine, if you have a computer, ability to create 3D objects using it and a 3D printer, you can easily turn your digital creations to life. You can print your own cell phone case, masks, toys, tools, replacement parts and more! Heck, you can even print your own Wi-Fi weather station! Of course, 3D printing your own guitar parts or even a whole guitar is possible! With it, you will be able to fully customize your guitar’s look, feel and design – something kids absolutely loves!

Anyways, here are some cool examples of 3D printed guitar parts. We think that you’ll absolutely love them!

3D Printed Nuts

This is an example of a 3D printed guitar nut from Stranberg Guitarworks. It looks good and solid, but according to them, the plastic used isn’t hard enough which resulted in the sound of the open string to be not as good as most people want. Although just a prototype, this one proves that 3D printing guitar parts are feasible.

I think if he used a different kind of 3D printing filament, the result will be very different. But seeing as he intends to use it for mass production, it might not be feasible. If you intend to print your own, make sure you carefully choose the right type of 3D printing filament to make sure that you can have a functional and durable final product.

3D Printed Guitar Capo

Isn’t it nice that you can print your own guitar capo? This One-Piece One-Handed Guitar Capo from Thingiverse is just what you need. This doesn’t have screws and levers so this clips with one hand. It also had a contoured presser bar that is perfect for a radiused fretboard. The thing is, this is an old version – so keep that in mind. Many people complained that it’s not strong enough and it can even break if opened too far.

Good thing an updated version came out. It is recontoured to prevent it from breaking easily. There are different versions available, the no O-ring version is best for acoustic guitars. If you follow the recommended settings, you’ll get a pretty sturdy built 3D printed capo.

3D Printed Guitar Picks

Well as you can see from our earlier examples, some of them aren’t perfect – they can break easily, they don’t play as intended, etc. – but I believe that the quality of 3D printed objects will massively improve in the future, in fact, you can already create high-quality 3D printed items, though they can be costlier.

Back to 3D printed picks, these picks have an excellent feel and thickness, it looks and feels sturdy too. The average price is USD 0.16 per pick according to the 3D model author, while the Amazon top seller is around USD 0.23 per pick, you get a discount – plus you can even tweak and add design to it.
