This research considers the controversy of modern acoustic instruments, which may have come to an evolutionary impasse, due to its high standardization that makes it difficult to explore design modifications. A new approach for the design and fabrication of an acoustic instrument is presented, using digital fabrication technologies, and specifically 3D printing, which has the potential to influence new designs, and to lead to new acoustics and ergonomic innovations. The projects below describes the key concepts of this approach, presenting the development process of such a 3D printed instrument—a prototype of a 3D printed concert flute, some other concepts for 3D printed instruments. This isn't a perfect instrument, some of the keys didn't close well and Seth had to improvise, and to use some fingers to close keys that didn't seal well. This is the reason - as some of you have noticed - the fingering seems odd.
