This is a quick sneak preview of my 3D printed alto sax.
And an important note: I am not a sax player, so be amazed by what 3D printing is capable, rather than by how my awful sax playing might be. And, yes, a couple of the notes are slightly out of tune because of air leakages. The next iterations will be perfect, I promise!

On the technical side, the sax has 41 components excluding all the springs and screws, It is printed in nylon, on a SLS machine, and weighs less than a quarter of a real sax (575grams vs 2.5Kg. Weight might go up a tad once painted, though, but still a lot less than a metal one).

Cheers
Olaf
