Concerto for Three MakerBots

CrashSpace is lucky enough to have three MakerBot 3D printers. These versatile devices can print objects out of ABS plastic. On June 25th we demonstrated exactly how versatile these devices really are.

If you run the stepper motor on the MakerBot at different speeds, it plays different nodes. There is a script that converts MIDI files in to MakerBot scripts that do just that, and the MakerBot becomes a musical instrument. Frank Capodieci, a friend of CrashSpace, composed an original piece of music called the Concerto for Three MakerBots that we premiered during our Hand Made Music Night.
