The Dutch Violin is no longer a prototype.
I am publishing the 3D files so anyone can join.
Why? Because it is highly unlikely that I found the optimum result.
Together we might.
You are free to use the files as long as you call the resulting instrument a Dutch Violin. You need experience in woodworking and CNC milling to successfully make this instrument.
I would really appreciate it to hear about the results.
