Make your own guitar with a 3D printer

No fret

Application security programs and practises

Check out this dude - jammin' on a guitar he designed using 3D modelling software.

This is the Zoybar Tor, created by a musician called Bård S D, using the open-source 3D modelling software Blender. Bård then had the body parts printed by Shapeways on a 3D printer for $175.

The body parts are designed by Zoybar, which describe itself as an "open R&D Lab" for academic, hobbyist, and commercial developers to easily create music instruments and applications".

Zoybar offers a guitar kit for musical hardware hackers that can be arranged in multiple ways. While it comes in either bass or six-string configurations, parts of the body can be fully tweaked in Blender to achieve whatever look you desire.

In this case, Bård has gone for a fretless six-string with minimal body design. It looks pretty schweet to me.

Zoybar Tor

If you're interested in making one yourself, the Zoybar kit starts at $670 (£416).
