Last month we wrote about maker Scott Elliott, who printed a music record on his Solidoodle SD300 printer. Don’t get too excited, though, as this was a record for a children’s Fisher-Price record player, not a normal player. A toy. It was a valiant effort, but as Scott said, the “3D printed record doesn’t play too well.”
Now Thingiverse maker Fred Murphy has built upon this idea by designing a two-sided record for the Fisher-Price player, one side with Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven, and the other side with the Star Wars theme. They actually play pretty well, maybe even good enough for a music industry copyright lawyer to get all fired up about.
But wait, there’s more! This is only were the fun starts! If you’ve got a 3D printer, or access to one, with some free software you can create your own record for the toy player with any song segment you want. All you need is Fred’s Fisher-Price Record Editor, found on Instructables. So get to it and send us your tunes.
