Opening my Shapeways Shop and links to webstore for custom 3D printed and decorated Native American flutes and panpipes.

Custom Flute Webstore

Samples Available at Shapeways:
Tribal Flute
Space Flute
Forest Flute

Panpipes Starry Night van Gogh
Panpipes Dust and Fire
Panpipes Iconography

A lot more designs coming as I test them as instruments and verify performance: alternative tunings for flutes and panpipes, double flutes, many decorations.

Awesome! Welcome to the Shapeways community! I've made a Bronze Shakuhachi Flute so far which you may have seen already, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your designs!

Cheers,
Matt & Sheila

Hi Shelia - thanks! yes, I saw your bronze "hard copy" and was very impressed! I'm very new to CAD and such, and it was hard enough getting texture mapping figured out! Your sculptured flute is gorgeous. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to bring some 3D decoration to the flutes. I thought maybe embossing would be easier, but haven't found anything "trivial" for a relative newbie like me. Displacement mapping was something I tried a little bit of, but was very unhappy with the results. I tried importing a flute into sculptris - which was arduous, as it would hang on a lot of files that other CAD programs were just fine with (well, it IS free!) - but was not happy with what I could do there.

Love your flute.

Hi!, Thanks for the compliments. Smile I really like the sound of your flutes, they are great. I think if you tried your hand at Zbrush software or Mudbox you'd be able to get some really nice detail added into your flute designs.

Cheers,
Matt & Sheila
