On the workbench
« on: January 06, 2020, 07:48:39 AM »
In the old forum we had this topic for the DIY stuff.
As xmas brought me a 3D printer, I started with some musical applications to learn how that works.

For my rehearsal rig, I wanted to transform a cheap Morley Wah into a "foot on" wah.   On my main rig I have a bad horsies, and I missed the switchless function.  I draw a small schematic of the switch, and figured out it could be replaced with 2 micro switches.
I designed the micro switch support and the button in 3D, and youhou that works.



The micro switches support beneath the plate:


Then I designed and printed a small volume pedal to complete this on the go rig. Not very nice, but functional and really small.


I hope everybody noticed I choose an orange plastic roll :)

I'm pretty sure I need a 3D printer. Not sure what for yet but pretty sure I need one...

Sure you need one :)    Even a cheap model like the one I have (under 200 euros) works very well, and in case of , all spare parts available.
Collaborative design solutions work very well. I use Tinkercad (web based) and Cura Ultimaker to generate the final gcode file. All are freeware.
