Classical pianist looking for help to print low-tech hearing device

Postby Levivuti » Tue Jun 06, 2017 12:54 pm

Hi everyone,

I am a classical pianist and I've designed a low-tech hearing device that I'd like to have printed. I have a CAD of the device and also a 3D printed prototype.

My uncle, John Stack, suggested to post to this community board.

Filling out an NDA will be required for anyone interested. Thanks!

It's good to hear that John Stack is still kicking! We were worried when he disappeared from the board. Tell him that we miss him.

If you don't get any bites here, 3DHubs is a website that can match you up with a local printer.

You should also evaluate the different kinds of printers and materials that exist, and decide if the part you need is best suited for FDM (plastic) printing or Resin. The KB on 3D Hubs is an excellent source for getting up to speed on materials, and there's a lot there if you go digging. https://www.3dhubs.com/knowledge-base/f ... s-compared

Plastic is on the left, and resin is on the right.

If you need help with resin, I can help you. If you want a plastic part, there are probably a thousand people between where you are and where I am that you might as well meet and do business with first (assuming you're on the West coast).

Say hi to John from us! Or better yet, nudge him to log on and post.
