3d Print of Del Gesu Scroll

Recommended Posts

3d printed  the Kreisler del  Gesu scroll. Came out pretty nicely. I guess it is really a "filius" scroll. It is nice to see this in three dimensions.

I think that casts of scroll and plates of good instruments could be commercially available. I remember Bissolotti had a plaster cast of a Strad scroll in his bench.

I totally agree with this. Having a 3d model to assist your carving is a great help vs. pictures.

When did dad take over?

Filius Andreae scrolls show up on Del Gesus after his retirement and recoevry around 1732, and last until 1740. I think this is the 1741 Kreisler, not the 1733. Did you make this? It's wonderful.

It is the 1730 or 1733 or whatever date the one at the LOC is. So a 1732 date it could be filius. Roger Hargrave in his article on the Kreisler however does not mention filius in his description of the scroll. I am not aware of another GDG that has Kreisler's name associated with it.

I did make it or in reality the 3D printer made it from an STL mesh file. So it is a plastic reincarnation of good old Giuseppe. A bit strange isn't it?

Sure it is... in that "toxic green" color :-)

I know that the green color is not my first choice. For the next one I want to do red, brown or orange. The only problem is I am trying to stay low maintenance with my friend who is using his expensive 3D printer to render my parts. That green is what was loaded in the machine. So far it is free. I want to keep it that way if I can. It took 6.5 hours to print. After all I could use some spray paint to make it more "real". ;)

Wouldn't white be better- closer to the colour of the maple you'll be carving?

The white is not maple colored but closer than green!

Is this done from a 3-D scan of the original, or constructed somehow from photos?

Sorry if this is a silly question. I know very little about this technology.

Scan. Photos are possible but difficult to get this level of accuracy.

You must be a VIP if they let you do that!

No just persistent. When I visited the Library of Congress last summer, I was treated as a nobody!

I've found the folks at the Smithsonian to be a little easier to deal with - kudos for getting permission to scan it!

That is what I have heard. My next D.C. trip will be at the Smithsonian.

I've never dealt with their musical instruments department, but my experience with the numismatic collection have always been wonderful.
